The village, known as Rupert's House in 1966, looking west over its hub. Rupert River flows into Hudson Bay (left background). The Cree houses are farther downstream to the left. The square building with the gray roof in the center is the Roman Catholic mission. The red-roofed buildings (center background) are in the Hudson's Bay Company compound. The HBC building (rightmost) oriented parallel to the river is one of the canoe factory buildings.
