Historic Sites of Manitoba: Sinclair’s Creek (Winnipeg)

This plaque, mounted on a carved stone lion’s head from the Royal Alexandra Hotel, is located at the foot of John Hirsch Place at Bertha Street. The creek, also known as Ross’ Creek or Brown’s Creek, ran easterly from Princess Street to the Red River along William Avenue and John Hirsch Place. It was filled in by the mid-1890s.
