You all know that local history is my hobby.
This Christmas, when looking for last minute gifts, consider a book, magazine or membership in a heritage organization. I put together a collection of suggestions here.
Also of note, the Manitoba Historical Society is counting down the 12 days of Christmas on their website again. This year they feature a write up and photo of a different old Winnipeg schoolhouse each day, most of which are now long gone.
If you went to, or grew up near, a school that no longer exists check it out !
