The Winnipeg Opera House in 1900 from Archives of Manitoba.


Shard 1 is about feet long by 2.5 feet wide and weighs about 250-300 pounds.

Shard 2 is about 3 feet long by 2 feet wide by 2.5 feet high and weighs about 100 pounds. It seems to be a header over a door, but with no good pictures available, that is just a guess. The only sure thing is that it is part of the theatre.
