great site! i grew up in a 1912 mansard-roofed house (also originaly post office, it still stands, was occupied until 2001) in the village of elva (near melita) the little village still has a few of its original turn of the century houses, the orignal dance hall, and two of western canada’s oldest grain elevators.
Hi Kerrin, Thank you for the comment on my blog. And thanks for the heritage travel tip. I will definitely visit Elva this summer and try to capture its past for the blog. Best regards, Reid
Great Site! I just drove by the barn you have pictured that is near the base of Riding Mountain. It is still standing. And my 70+ cousin from Dauphin, who was my guide, told me she used to work for the family that owned that farm. They were apparently very nice people.
Hi David, Thanks for your comments on my blog. I explore the area north of Riding Mountain quite often. Always something new to discover there. Reid
As a homesick Manitoban I enjoyed your blog very much, especially the sense of place you are capturing, especially with a focus on the people. While still living there , as we drove down the highway, I would ponder the abandoned and overgrown homesteads. They seemed melancholic reminders of dreams hitting hard reality. Why did this family make it and their neighbour not? Where did they go?
VERY INTERESTING , SOME I NEVER KNEW ABOUT, RESTON IS MY HOME TOWN
Thanks Glenn. Appreciate you exploring my blog. Reston has a rarity in your Italianate municipal building. https://readreidread.wordpress.com/2011/09/14/manitoba-heritage-building-reston-municipal-building/
I have come across your site and love old buildings. watched a couple already and will watch more. I am from Winnipeg but have lived in Vancouver now most of my life.
follow up, I did belong to this site and must have forgotten about. great to find again.
Glad you rediscovered me. Plenty more old buildings – inside and out – on the way. Thanks much. Reid
Me again. I took the Stockton ferry over to the north side of River and then accessed the Criddle/Vane house by driving along a very narrow sand road/pathway. Thanks for reminding me.
You are welcome!
