Work on the construction of the grand Manitoba Legislative Building in the City of Winnipeg began in 1913 by means of excavation.

Soon after the beginning of World War 1 construction was dramatically slowed due to a lack of labourers, materials, and finances. It wasn't until quite sometime after the war in 1919 that the building was completed enough to be partially occupied.

The exterior walls of this monumental legislative building are made of Tyndall Stone - a fossil rich stone quarried at nearby Garson.

The Golden Boy which sits atop the dome is a gilded 5.25 metre high figure, and is representative of enterprise and eternal youth. The Golden Boy figure was sculpted by Georges Gardet of Paris, then cast in 1918 in France.

The interior of the building features a grand staircase, flanked at the base by two bison. At the top of the staircase is the antechamber which is crowned by a dome rotunda which appears to be held up by 4 pairs of Corinthian columns. ...More information below photos...
