Historic Sites of Manitoba: Chatfield Distributors / Franklin Press Building (168 Bannatyne Avenue, Winnipeg)

This small building, designed by Winnipeg architect J. H. G. Russell, was built in 1904 for the printing firm of Franklin Press. The company went out of business in 1926 and a wholesale tobaccoist took over the building. During the 1940s and 1950s, it was occupied by a office supply company. After 1967, it was home of Chatfield Distributors, a manufacturers’ agent and importing firm. The building is a municipally-designated historic site.
