Inside iconic Gypsy’s Bakery and Café in Churchill, Manitoba
MetadataShow full item record
The new Churchill Northern Studies Centre building was officially opened in August 2011. Its inaugural conference celebrated the thirty-year research legacy of Professor Bob Jefferies. Explore his, his students’ and colleagues’ research at Wapusk National Park and the Churchill area in the Robert Lenthall Jefferies Researcher Spotlight collection in Yorkspace. Since many delegates were returning to Churchill for the first time since they had done their field research here, they took the time to be tourists. Here we see the scene inside the popular local bakery, Gypsy’s Café. Sadly, it burned down in May, 2018 and an important local gathering spot was lost. York University Professors Dawn Bazely (Biology) and Steve Alsop (Education) brought the Churchill Community of Knowledge Digital Archive back to Churchill in October 2019, including to the Duke of Marlborough School. Grade 5-9 students helped to describe this image and to create its Metadata. Their keywords were: RIP, fire, burning, very good food, arctic char and crispy donuts.
