Historic Sites of Manitoba: Free Press Building (300 Carlton Street, Winnipeg)

This six-storey structure on Carlton Street in downtown Winnipeg, designed by architects John Woodman and Raymond Marwood-Elton Carey and constructed by the firm of Carter-Halls-Aldinger by 1913, was occupied by the Manitoba Free Press (later the Winnipeg Free Press) for 78 years. In 1991, the company relocated to an industrial park in northwest Winnipeg. The building is a municipally-designated historic site.
