Images of Emerson

Train in Emerson, Manitoba (Date unknown...)Main Street, Emerson (Sketch, artist unknown - 1876)Customs house at Emerson, Manitoba. (1877)Article about the Emerson riots of 1872 with images of the newspaper offices of the Manitoban that were vandalized. I searched around and have found that they were related to election violence that began in St. Boniface near Winnipeg and spread throughout the province in connection with the Metis and the many injustices against them.Exterior of Manitoban office after destruction, Emerson, Manitoba.
(October 24, 1872)
