The pattern of service centers in Manitoba in 1872 and in 1886 is examined. Although a high correlation between transportation nodality and importance of service center is evident, this nodality is apparently a concomitant of service-center growth rather than a prime cause. The ideas of groups and individuals involved in promoting service-center growth seems to be the key to understanding this growth.
