Tight, unmarked; wear to front inside corners and inside edge; Lillian Gibbons' articles about Winnipeg houses, written from 1935 to the early 1960s for The Winnipeg Tribune, appear here under their original dates. Information about the current status of the houses has been appended and demolition dates are included where applicable. Through the descriptions of the houses, the furnishings, and the social activities and daily interests of the people who lived and worked in Winnipeg during this time, the stories unfold a life-style that is now gone. They tell of an era of adventure and splendor when coureur de bois and Lieutenant Governor, when frontier plainness and late Victorian elegance met and mingled at this prairie crossroads.
