Historic Sites of Manitoba: Elmwood Telephone Exchange Building (230 Martin Avenue West, Winnipeg)

This one-storey brick building at the southwest corner of Martin Avenue West and Brazier Street in Winnipeg was designed by local architect Alexander D. Melville and built for the Manitoba Telephone System. Announced in January 1928, the $600,000 facility was tendered in early March, and constructed later that year by contractor H. W. Walin at a cost of $35,000. It was used as a satellite branch of the St. John’s Telephone Exchange Building. It has since been converted to residential use.
