Looking back, it's neat to think that Winnipeg was about to go through its biggest transformation. The Art Gallery, Airport, Convention Centre, U of W Centennial Hall, Centennial Library, Manitoba Museum of Man and Nature, City Hall, PSB, Centennial Concert Hall, Manitoba Theatre Centre, Richardson Building, Winnipeg Inn (NE: Westin, Lombard), countless apartment towers, etc would all be built in the next 5 years from the date of this film..
If anything, this clip represents a snapshot of the dying days of the old pedestrian friendly Winnipeg and the beginning of the modern era.
