18.60: Winnipeg Airport at an Early Stage of Development

This low-level photo provides detail of Winnipeg International Airport at an early stage of development. Parts of three runways can be seen 1. The terminal building is located in the east 2 with a large four-engine plane pulled up beside it 3. Note that at this early stage there are no covered walkways—passengers had to go outside to board the plane. In the west are three hangers 4 with at least eight planes 5 scattered around them and a further 12 (all the same) in a line to the east 6. Fuel storage tanks are located close by 7. In the south is Canadian Forces Base Winnipeg (north), with barrack-like buildings 8. The road along the south edge is Ness Avenue 9 with residential areas north 10 and south 11 of it and Assiniboine Golf Club 12 between two residential areas.
