Come along with Russ Gourluck, author of the best—selling A Store Like No Other: Eaton’s of Winnipeg, as he takes us on a nostalgic tour of what was the heart of Winnipeg’s shopping and entertainment for most of the 20th century. Illustrated with dozens of vintage and current images, this book pays tribute to the people, stores, restaurants, and theatres that made "The Avenue" so vibrant, while examining the factors that led to its decline, and its prospects for the future.
