St. Claude Gaol

Reid Dickie 

The little town of St. Claude on Hwy #2 in Manitoba, besides having the second largest smoking pipe in the world, also has a quaint gaol (British variant of jail) restored to house miscreants and curious tourists. The nice ladies in the back room who gave out tourist information didn’t try to arrest me but they did offer to take my picture if I wanted to dress up in black and white striped prison shirt and pants and pose in the cell. I declined.
