Dauphin Manitoba 1915

Dauphin, Man C1915

Reid Dickie

This is a hand painted glass slide taken in 1915 of the rail side of the Dauphin Train Station. The station, built in 1912 by Canadian Northern Railways, has been gloriously preserved and houses offices and the Dauphin Rail Museum. Watch my short video of Dauphin’s train station.

Slide images like this were created by the Department of Immigration and Colonization in Ottawa and used to attract European immigrants to Canada.
