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.
