Historic Sites of Manitoba: Marshall Wells Warehouse (136 Market Avenue, Winnipeg)

This building on Market Avenue in Winnipeg was designed by local architectural firm of Hooper and Walker, and constructed in 1905 for the US-based Marshall-Wells hardware company. Extended in 1906, four additional floors were added in 1912 by the construction firm of Carter, Halls, and Aldinger. It became a municipally-designated heritage building in May 1987.
