Historic Sites of Manitoba: Imperial Dry Goods Block / Trend Interiors (91 Albert Street, Winnipeg)

Built on Albert Street in 1900, as a retail store for R. J. Whitla, this building was donated during the Depression by the Steinkopf family to the Young Men’s Hebrew Association (YMHA) for use as its headquarters. The clear span of the third floor was used as both a gymnasium and a theatre. A plaque is mounted on the west side of the building, which is a municipally-designated historic site.
