In the course of his research in preserved professional journals, Jim Christie found a really interesting group of articles detailing the work - over a century ago - on the aqueduct built to supply Winnipeg's municipal water.
Here are the last three articles from the series published in The Contract Record of 1917 detailing this construction.
The first three articles can be seen at the link below.
I have tried to make the text as readable as possible. In many cases the images have been adjusted to yield more detail and they are repeated in an enlarged form after each particular page of text. The GWWD railway, which runs along the aqueduct, is marked on the 1994 provincial road map below.
The links to the original journal articles (in copy and paste format) appear below. In some cases, you may need to scroll down to the first page of the article - the number in the link, e.g. 275, indicates the first page. There are also interesting surprises to be found if you choose to scroll beyond these particular articles.
