Historic Sites of Manitoba: Crump Block (846 Main Street, Winnipeg)

This three-storey brick building on Main Street at Dufferin Avenue in Winnipeg was designed by local architect Daniel Smith and built in 1904 by the Manitoba Construction Company for realtor Percy A. Crump, at a cost of about $45,000. A Bank of Commerce branch and three stores occupied its main floor and the upper two floors contained residential apartments.
