Historic Sites of Manitoba: Bank of Hamilton Bank Vault (Bradwardine, Municipality of Riverdale)

In 1904, the Bank of Hamilton opened a branch at Bradwardine in what is now the Municipality of Riverdale. It closed in 1926 and the only part of the building remaining at the site is its concrete and brick vault.
