STRONG, H.A. Interior of Fort Garry. A vanished Scene in the early History of our Country. Dedicated to the Pioneer Settlers of the Canadian North West. Montreal, Burland for H.A. Strong in Winnipeg, Manitoba, 1884.

Colour lithography with a little hand-colouring (image size 46 by 74 cm) with wide margins; image with one or two minor spots, margin with a few repaired tears, far away from the printed surface, a striking image and charming scene.
Now in downtown Winnipeg, the fort was the administrative center of the Hudson's Bay Company for the Red River Settlement. The print re-imagines the fort with traders (Native Americans and a few Russians, among British) as it stood in the 1820s, before the destruction by flood in 1826.
