    This year marks the anniversary of two special events in the history of the Hudson’s Bay Company and the Province of Manitoba. It is the 40th anniversary of the transfer of the HBC Archives from London, England to Manitoba.  It is also the 20th anniversary of their donation to the Archives of Manitoba and of the HBC Museum Collection to The Manitoba Museum.  To celebrate, HBC recently announced the donation of two historic murals that used to hang in HBC’s downtown Winnipeg store to the Museum. To learn more about the donation and the anniversaries, check out this article from the Winnipeg Free Press, HBC’s press release, and a video produced by Canada’s History.
