This is a scene of early Winnipeg recreated at the Manitoba Museum. What especially caught my eye was the Orange Crush near the top of the image. Orange Crush was my favourite drink when I was a kid.

I'm not sure if this was an actual street setting from the early days of Winnipeg. McDougall is a famous historic name locally going back to the days before Manitoba became a part of Canada.

There is a drugstore, photo shop, rooming house, taro card reader as part of this scene.

The marquee lights around the "Drug" sign reflects vintage in it's finest hour. So glad you had your camera with you on the trip to visit this museum. I love the Orange Crush sign - one of my favorites as well.

Good that so many museums have 'built' replicas of old buildings for the young - and the not so young! - to enjoy.

As John says, good to have replicas to show future generations but a shame none of the original buildings have survived the rush of modern structures.
In UK when an old building absolutely has to be moved, it is taken down piece by piece and rebuilt elsewhere - in some cases in a "village" of similarly moved structures.

Some bits and pieces well kept Jan. We have many buildings here with heritage listing unfortunately not enough,
