Historic Sites of Manitoba: Bank of Montreal Building (426 Portage Avenue, Winnipeg)

This one-storey branch of the Bank of Montreal in Winnipeg was designed by Montreal architect Kenneth Guscotte Rea and constructed in 1927 by R. N. Wyatt, with major renovations occurring in 1948 and 1971. The building, a municipally-designated historic site, was vacated when the bank moved its operations into an adjacent shopping centre.
