PS 8523 I95 Z46 1 · Series · 1919, 1924-1974
Part of Dorothy Livesay archives

This series consists of approximately 1,470 poems, which are represented as typescripts and/or manuscripts. File titles within this series reflect the arrangement of poems, which are grouped together based on the year and time frame in which those poems were written or, in the case of poems with no recorded date, the year and alphabetical span of those poems.
While nearly all of the poems are typescript, most poems in this series are in both typescript (ts) and manuscripts (ms) form. Many poems have multiple typescript copies and some have multiple manuscript copies. It is not clear whether Livesay herself created the typescripts, but many have handwritten notes, edits, or signatures from Livesay. When there is one or more typescript and one or more manuscript of a single poem, the materials are arranged together (ts/ms). Rarely, two different poems are written on one manuscript and therefore not all manuscript poems are arranged with their respective typescript.
This series also consists of clippings and photocopies of published poems (p), which are arranged with the typescript and/or manuscript of the same poem.

"From the boundary of Manitoba north to Lake Winnipeg, a distance of one hundred miles, runs an historic highway, which, as it passes through the City of Winnipeg, is known as Main Street. A buffalo trail, an Indian pathway, it saw later explorers, merchant adventurers, missionaries, soldiers and lawgivers, who crossed it on their way westward. It felt the surge of every tide of settlement. Here the mystery of the West was glimpsed. Here its spirit was felt, its music heard."

An illustrated history of Manitoba and Winnipeg's "Main Street" highway, told in verse. Each page has an accompanying illustration. Topics and illustrations include bison [buffalo]; Indigenous peoples; voyageurs; missions and missionaries; settlers; soldiers and historic battles; farmsteads; immigrants and immigration; religion; and the railway.
