1 Coates, Ken and McGuinness, Fred. With Roger Newman. THE KEYSTONE PROVINCE; AN ILLUSTRATED HISTORY OF MANITOBA ENTERPRISE.
Burlington, Ontario Windsor Publications 1988 0897812573 / 9780897812573 First Edition Hard Cover Very Good+ Very Good+ 
184 pp, 11 1/4" H. B&w and colour photographs, reproductions. "(The authors) describe Manitoba's beginnings as a fur trade empire under the Hudson's Bay Company. They depict the development of the province's resources and potential as a national priority when, in 1870, a very small Province of Manitoba was created to spearhead the development of a western agrarian empire. Working within a changing social and economic climate, entrepreneurs struggled to establish Winnipeg as the West's premier city, and situated that city as the hub of a transportation and distribution network that supported the province's heartland. Ranging forward, the authors' accounting of the province's role in agriculture, industry, hydro, mining, and tourism is given within the context of national and international forces. Roger Newman has prepared histories of selected Manitoba businesses and organizations whose contributions to the development of the Keystone Province should not go unrecorded." Minor wrinkling at top of spine. Dust jacket has minor edge wrinkling.

Alan Hackett) delved into Manitoba's early golf history, recording by means of word and old photographs, forgotten information of that bygone era. In (this book, he) takes us back to early courses such as the Stony Mountain course built by prisoners around 1889 and golf clubs, beginning with the first established club in Virden in 1892. And, of course, Manitoba golf history would not be complete without the Scots who brought the game to the keystone province." Very minor rubbing to glossy boards.
