Portage la Prairie, Manitoba

po-portagePortage la Prairie in the western Canadian province of Manitoba was the home of this jail-like Post Office. The town’s name was derived from its proximity to the portage across the prairie between the Red and Assiniboine Rivers and Lake Manitoba. The building miraculously escaped demolition and today serves as the Portage City Hall.
