Chapter 12: The Southern Cities

12.15: The Northern Part of Brandon

Shown on this photo is the Assiniboine Gardens area of Brandon located between the CP tracks 1 and the Assiniboine River 2, the only true ethnic area of Brandon. In the foreground is St. Mary’s Ukrainian Catholic Church 3 with the Ukrainian Reading Room to the left of it 4. In the middle is the Ukrainian Greek Orthodox Church of the Holy Ghost 5 with Polish Sokol Association’s Club and Hall to the south of it 6. The unwooded area in the middle ground 7 marks the former course of the Snye that used to enter the Assiniboine off the photo to the right 8. Close to the river are the Burns Meat Plant 9 that closed several years ago and the Manitoba Pool Livestock Market 10 that is still open. The North Hill is in the background 11; since the photo was taken box malls have been constructed on Eighteenth Street at the base of the hill 12.
