Historic Sites of Manitoba: Allman Block (592-594 Main Street, Winnipeg)

This three-storey brick building on Main Street in Winnipeg was designed by local architect John Hamilton Gordon Russell and built in 1904 by D. Bruce and Company. It was occupied by clothier Daniel Flynn Allman until about 1923. It subsequently accommodated a succession of businesses. In November 2014, the bulding became a municipally-designated historic site.
