Historic Sites of Manitoba: Canadian Pacific Railway Post Office Building (765 Main Street, Winnipeg)

In 1924, this three-storey brick building was constructed by the Winnipeg firm of Carter-Halls-Aldinger for the Canadian Pacific Railway. It accommodated mail that was transported on CPR lines between eastern and western Canada. After its use for mail handling ended, the building was occupied by a variety of tenants. It is a municipally-designated historic site.
