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 designed by the American architectural firm of McKim, Mead and White, and built between 1911 and 1911 (supervised by local architect John Nelson Semmens) at a cost of about $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.
