St. Boniface Cathedral

This is a photograph of St. Boniface Cathedral.  It was built in the early-1900s and served the francophone Catholic population in St. Boniface for many years.  In 1968, the church burned in a terrible fire.  Only the front and sides of the building remain.  A new St. Boniface Cathedral was built in 1972 within the ruins of the previous cathedral.  Today, the old cathedral and the new cathedral, combined with the attached cemetery, is one of Winnipeg's most popular tourist destinations and one of the most historic francophone landmarks.
