Cee F. - The Exchange District
HYPE 29

Winnipeg is an older city than Vancouver, with a very different history. My hometown was, in its heyday, a wealthy metropolis, the third largest city in the country. When the Panama Canal opened in 1914, international trade changed dramatically and so did Winnipeg's fortunes - newer cities further west quickly surpassed it both in size and prosperity. But there are still parts of Winnipeg where you can see hints of its former glory; bank offices carved in ornate marble, the bronze statue that glints in the sun on top of the legislative building and the Exchange District, an entire neighbourhood of vintage brick and frosted glass. We took these photos on Alexander Street in the Exchange District last Saturday. I wanted a simple but striking background that would highlight my first maxi dress in years, from Boutique Onze, and Alexander Street, with its old brick factory buildings that somehow remain utterly unchanged, year after year, proved to be the perfect spot.
