More than 400 feet of steel and light, the Wall marks the height, depth and location of Upper Fort Garry’s west wall, which was demolished in the 1880s. Its layers scribe three continuous lines tracing the history of western Canada and of Upper Fort Garry. Viewing from left to right, the imagery begins with First Nations, Métis, and the fur trade. It then portrays European settlers and the events surrounding Red River’s entry into Canada. Finally, it depicts the remaking of the prairies, the building of Winnipeg, and the development of northern Manitoba.
