The Winnipeg General Strike Tour: Part One, The Manitoba Firefighter's Museum
You may see an alleyway that's a shortcut to get to Centennial Concert Hall. But it's also the place where strike supporters were cornered in 1919 on Bloody Saturday. Today we begin a tour around the city as we approach the 100th anniversary of the strike. Historian Nolan Reilly is our guide. His first stop with Marcy Markusa takes us into the area around Higgins and Maple and inside the Manitoba Firefighter's Museum. An old tyndall stone hall that with classic faded red trim that is still standing today, just as it was in 1919.
