The Mosaic Village: An Illustrated History of Winnipeg's North End celebrates Winnipeg's most colourful and distinctive area which has produced dozens of famous and infamous Canadians. Beginning with the hopes and dreams of families who came to Canada in search of new lives more than a century ago, The Mosaic Village recounts the stories of generations of North Enders who shopped at Oretzki's, Gunn's, and Kern-Hill; who strolled along Main Street, McGregor, and Selkirk Avenue; who joined their friends at the College, the Deluxe, and the Palace. Drawing on interviews with more than a hundred current and former North Enders and extensively illustrated with photos (many never published before) The Mosaic Village evokes the flavours of perogies and kubasa, of bagels and rye bread, of Kelekis hot dogs and Oscar's corned beef sandwiches.
