Historic Sites of Manitoba: Bank of Montreal Building (335 Main Street, Winnipeg)

This iconic building at the intersection of Portage Avenue and Main Street in Winnipeg was built in 1913 by the American architectural firm of McKim, Mead and White, at a cost of $1,295,000. A monument in front of the building commemorates bank employees killed during the First World War. The building is a municipally-designated historic site.
