Dumplings: The Summer Season
In summer I like to go through my half-baked draft posts and items that I saved to my hard drive thinking one day I'll do turn them into a post and never did. Rather than nix them I present these odds and ends over the next couple of weeks as they might be of interest to some:

Alexandra School, located on the site of the Convention Centre (top left side of map)
Manitoba's Icelandic Festival Committee from August 3, 1907 (WFP). This was held at River Park in Winnipeg before it moved to Gimli.
