Rowdy, pardner

Dauphin's Countryfest a good time, no matter how much it rains. The culture of Canada's longest-running country-music festival isn't just one of Party, Sleep, Repeat, to quote someone's relentlessly on-point tank top. It's also a culture rooted in community -- a fact that was underscored during a weekend of never-ending rain. (Boris Minkevich / Winnipeg Free Press)

A glass menagerie: Rare negatives give glimpse into city's history

In 1898, you could purchase a Vive box camera for $5. More than 110 years later, no one at the Free Press knows how the old Vive glass negatives ended up in one of the drawers in our photo archives — decades untouched. But the power of a photograph in capturing a moment in time is undeniable when the negatives have been scanned and viewed as positive images. — Wayne Glowacki, Winnipeg Free Press photojournalist

Help us choose the best Winnipeg Free Press front pages

Could it be Cindy and Clara comparing medals in Turin? Or the trial of Louis Riel? Winnipeg winning the Stanley Cup? What about Manitobans heading off on the Nile Expedition? Or the arrival of the Beatles. Maybe the death of the beer snake?

Newspapers Canada and PEI 2014 are calling on Canadian newspapers to submit their best front-page stories for a competition called The History of Canada in the Nation’s Front Pages. The national competition will celebrate and award newspaper stories that have made front-page news.

The Free Press can enter two dozen front pages for a chance to be represented in the final project. The front-page stories must date from 1864 to December 2013. Ordinary Canadians and a panel of industry experts will help select the winners.

Please help us decide which we should enter. You remember the story; we’ll find the front page. Send your suggestions to frontpage@freepress.mb.ca by May 20, and we'll feature a selection of them here.
