Before and After: Regina Cyclone

(Before and after photo source)

Todays before and after is a little different – it is a quick look at the impact of the Regina Cyclone.  The Cyclone, which hit on June 30, 1912, greatly impacted the citizens and built infrastructure of the downtown.  Last Wednesday was the 98th anniversary of this event.

Here are a few articles from the New York Times, sent to me from Amy L. (actually they were the impetus to write this post): NY Times 1; NY Times 2

Another good site for photos is here, and of course, wikipedia is always a gem for basic, primer info.  Here is also a clip from the CBC digital archives.

Lastly,  here is a great photo showing Victoria Park after the Cyclone:
