Experience 1964 Winnipeg, Canada With This Vintage Tourism Video


For fans of all things Canada, this vintage tourism film for Winnipeg recently resurfaced online, and it offers a pretty thorough tour of Manitoba's capital, circa the 1960s.

According to Mashable, the film (titled City of Rivers) was hosted by the late Ed McCrea, whose son found it in storage and whose grandson shared it to YouTube earlier this month. During its 26-minute runtime, the Manitoba Department of Industry and Commerce-produced project talks about the region's fur trading roots and highlights some of the city's biggest attractions at the time, including Lower Fort Garry, the gate at Upper Fort Garry, Saint Boniface Cathedral, and the Winnipeg International Airport, which was once referred to as the "Taj Mahal of the Canadian prairies," according to McCrea.
