On this site, used to stand a century-old elm tree that lined the streets of Armstrong's Point (http://www.mhs.mb.ca/docs/mb_history/05/armstrongpttour.shtml).
Armstrong's Point is a popular walking spot, by area residents of upscale Osborne Village (http://www.cip-icu.ca/greatplaces/en/place.asp?id=6053).
Armstrong Point has been designated a historic site by Heritage Winnipeg (http://www.heritagewinnipeg.com/).
This photo is a stark reminder of the failed attempt of Trees Winnipeg, to protect and preserve the century-old tree that once stood here, from the devastating Dutch Elm disease that ravaged the tree.
In the Spring and Fall, Armstrong's Point is a popular spot for the Osborne Village residents to bring their dogs for a walk or just stroll and enjoy the beautiful historic houses lining up the streets of Armstrong's Point.
