mostly-history:

Winnipeg City Hall and Volunteer Monument (Manitoba, 1887).

This was Winnipeg’s city hall from 1886 to 1962, when it was
demolished because pieces of it became crumbling.  The monument is in
memory of the 90th Winnipeg Battalion of Rifles and 92nd
Winnipeg Battalion of Light Infantry, who served in the North-West
Rebellion of 1885, an unsuccessful uprising of Métis, Cree and
Assiniboine against the Canadian government.

The Winnipeg Tribune, Manitoba, November 11, 1933

After 17 days, Sam Dunton, official photographer of New York’s aquarium, has the goods on Cha and Hotcha, the kissing gouramis. And are they in deep water! The scandalous going-ons were revealed when the two small fish, newly arrived from Holland, were placed on exhibition. First a woman tittered. Then a little boy said: “Hey, Ma, just like Mae West.” But when Sam Dunton decided to snap the loving pair for the aquarium publication, Cha and Hotcha didn’t bite. That is – not for 17 days – until Mr. Duton caught them making up one a big scale after a lover’s quarrel, as shown above.
