Curling Capital

Morris Mott (Author), John Allardyce (Author)


The major themes in this volume are the rise of Winnipeg to world curling prominence in the nineteenth century and the persistence of that prominence in the twentieth.


"Mott’s and Allardyce’s Curling Capital details through four chronologically based chapters of approximately thirty years each, the emergence and evolution of curling in Winnipeg from its beginnings through to 1988. Their work confirms and documents what most Winnipeg curlers already knew—that Winnipeggers invented, developed, and were the first to excel at the game of curling as we know it today."
