Historic Sites of Manitoba: Bathgate Block (242 Princess Street, Winnipeg)

This three-storey brick building, designed by the Winnipeg architectural firm of Barber and Barber, was erected between 1882 and 1883 at the northwest corner of Princess Street and Alexander Avenue for William Bathgate. Bathgate owned the building until 1888 when a Quebec-based financial firm took control of it. The block’s long-term occupants included a tent and canvas manufacturer (1891 to 1926), a foundry (1924 to around 1973) and a washing machine merchant (1926 to around 1950). Other tenants included wholesalers, manufacturers, and commission agents. The building is a municipally-designated historic site.
