Leisure and Courtship in a Resort Town, 1900-1967
During the first half of the twentieth century, Winnipeg Beach proudly marketed itself as the Coney Island of the West.

In Winnipeg Beach, Dale Barbour takes us into the heart of this turn of the century resort area and introduces us to some of the people who worked, played and lived in the resort.
