Winnipeg's North End has informed the Canadian mythology and influenced the national psyche. The North End also divides and defines the city of Winnipeg, shaping its politics and sense of identity. It is here where First Nations and Old and New World immigrants cross the boundaries of ethnicity, class, and culture, creating a complex multicultural community. There is joy here, and pride, and poverty, and richness, and beauty. John Paskievich grew up in the North End. In these photographs, taken between the mid-1970s and the mid-1990s, he set out to explore the North End he knew in his youth. What he found were traces of it, captured in the stillness in which the past still lingers and in the dignity and singularity of its inhabitants.

A great Time Capsule of Photographs. Captures People and Places in a not so long ago period.
It was interesting to see that Winnipeg was similar to Ottawa to what I remembered as a child, Corner stores and parts of Vanier spring to mind.
I think most pictures are from the 70s, This may be because they are all B/W. One looks like it could have been from the 70s but one of the Kids had crocs, So it must have been a 90s picture. That in itself tells a lot.

Wonderful evocative photos (do you remember when perogies were a dollar a dozen?)
