Historic Sites of Manitoba: Dominion Post Office Building (Lyleton, Municipality of Two Borders)

This one-storey building in Lyleton, in the Municipality of Two Borders, was unique in that its south side was made from poured concrete whereas the front (east) and north walls were made from locally-cast concrete blocks. Its year of construction was probably within the first decade of the 20th century, when the majority of Manitoba buildings made using this technique were built. The south wall had marked structural damage. It was demolished sometime between 2012 and 2021.
