Historic Charlottetown showcased in outdoor heritage exhibit
The exhibit will be unveiled on Heritage Day and run until Feb. 29 in some storefront windows
The exhibit, "A Walk Through the Past: Great George Street to University Avenue and Back," will be held in the windows of participating businesses from the cenotaph to Euston Street.
According to the city's website, "this section of Great George Street became University Avenue in 1971, however the original name, honouring George III, was returned in May 2015."
"They will see photographs from way back in the 1860s up until the 1980s. There will be images of what buildings were before now, like historic images of the Capitol Theatre, we'll have one of Sam the Record Man, Garden city. They've all changed of course," said Munn.
Munn says the outdoor exhibit reaches many more people than an exhibit in a gallery might. The exhibit will be unveiled at the annual City of Charlottetown Heritage Awards ceremony on Feb. 16 and will be on display until the end of the month.
