Historic Sites of Manitoba: Bee Hive Building / Ukrainian Voice Building (842 Main Street, Winnipeg)

This one-storey brick building on Main Street in Winnipeg was built in 1901 for John Rickard Clements. It housed his Bee Hive department store then various retail businesses until 1974 when it was purchased by the Ukrainian Voice newspaper. It occupied the building until it ceased publishing in 2018. Two murals by Dennis Bell, one of a young newspaper hawker and the other of Ukrainian dancers, appear on the north exterior wall.
