140 for 140: Snapshots of Our History – November 30, 2017

November 30, 2017 — 

The University of Manitoba was first founded on February 28, 1877, becoming the first degree-granting body in Western Canada. Over the course of the University’s 140th year, Archives & Special Collections will be sharing 140 historical images of the University of Manitoba.

Today’s photos are a throwback to a time where grilled cheese sandwiches were only 25 cents in the university cafeteria!
