More than any other building from the early twentieth century, the railway station was the built symbol of progress and hope. It was where the powerful steam locomotive and trains of cars roared to impressive stops and it was where mail, passengers and cargo arrived, often in a frenzy of activity. The railway companies designed sets of standardized buildings for use throughout their systems. At Minnedosa, the Canadian Pacific Railway built this station in 1910, replacing an earlier building that had succumbed to fire. With its broad expanse of roof, it is an excellent example of its type.
