Heritage buildings line the east side of Carberry's Main Street.

I greatly appreciate the Aug. 2 article by Bill Redekop, our provincial rural historian, as I will call him, about the fine buildings of Carberry (Fine buildings that shouldn't have been).

I lived in Brandon for a number of years and visited Carberry a few times but never saw the town through Redekop's eyes. Pity.

If Redekop has not had a book published collecting his rural columns, I respectfully suggest he and the Free Press should do so immediately.

These days I am somewhat confined to the city, so I find it most welcome to get out of its environs, smell the hay and enjoy the open skies of our province by way of these articles.
