Chapter 15: Industry/Manufacturing

15.6: Brandon From the East

This photograph, a high oblique so called because the horizon is showing, was taken looking west along Victoria Avenue 1 with Richmond Avenue 2 on the left (south); both are true east/west roads. In the foreground (left) is Koch Fertilizer Canada Ltd. 3 with the Green Acres Industrial Park 4 to the west on either side of the CN railway line 5. In the foreground is a power line 6 running to the Koch Fertilizer Plant from the thermal power station just off the photo to the right (north). At the junction of Victoria Avenue and 17th Street East 7 is Assiniboine Community College 8—one of two institutes of higher education in the city, the other being Brandon University. In the middle ground are the residential areas of Brandon 9 with the CN line 10 at an angle to the grid-like roads. Flat agricultural land surrounds the city.
