A little trip through Manitoba and North Dakota
International Peace Gardens.
The Peace Tower.
One hundred and twenty feet or 37 meters are the height of the four columns reaching into the spacious skies. The tower's height represents the early immigrants' soaring ambitions.
Lifted into place by crane, the concrete columns consist of 17 pre-cast sections, each weighing 45.000 pounds, a total of 22 tons per column.
