Manitoba Provincial Legislative Building

Filed under: Lang:English,Subj:Canada,Subj:Travel — Jemyoung Leigh @ 21:45

I visited Manitoba’s provincial legislative building at Osborne and Broadway. The construction was begun at 1917 and finished at 1920, so it took three years to be built.

Legislative 01

This is old building but stands firm and looks strong.

Around the building, there is a park like grass, and are many statues. This is for the warriors at the first World War. It was Saturday, and there were many people taking picture of wedding.

Wow, the friends of the bride are more beautiful than the bride herself. At the entrance, I signed up and got “Tour” badge.

Bison
In the lobby, you will see the Bison first which is the symbolic animal of Manitoba.

Legislative coll 2

These are the inside of the building. It is big and nice building, but not so many things to see. If you want larger picture, click the thumb nails below.

At upstairs, you can see the main conference hall of legislative building.

Main conference hall looks like these.

Legislative 11

This is the lift in the ground floor. Well, isn’t it great and wonderful to have a lift for a building which is built at 1917?

Well, it is not a something to see, but it is something to see the friends of the bride. 🙂

  1. Did you get a good look at the Golden Boy on top of the dome? The Manitoba Legislative Building is famous for the Golden Boy and for many symbolic features that incorporate mathematics, mythology and religion. After reading your post and enjoying your photographs I wanted to know more about the building’s history, so I did a quick search and located Wikipedia article that has a lot of interesting information that you and others may want to read. Thank you for posting about this famous building. Now I would like to see visit it! 🙂
