Historic Sites of Manitoba: Great West Saddlery Building (113 Market Avenue, Winnipeg)

The Great West Saddlery Company, under founder and President Elisha F. Hutchings, built this six-storey brick factory building in 1910 to complement an existing warehouse across the street. The firm manufactured saddles, harnesses, collars, whips, valises, and leather bindings, later expanded into automobile accessories, shoe bindings, and leather goods. Designed by Winnipeg architect W. W. Blair, it was used by the firm into the 1940s then by garment manufacturers in the 1950s and 1960s. It was vacant by 1978. It was renovated into cooperative residential housing in the late 1980s. The building is a municipally-designated historic site.
