Historic Sites of Manitoba: Miller and Richard Type Foundry Building (121-123 Princess Street, Winnipeg)

This four-storey building was designed by local architect Frank Peters and constructed in 1904-05 on the east side of Princess Street between Bannatyne and William avenues. Its first occupants were the Miller and Richard Company, which supplied metal type and printers’ machinery, remaining there until 1931 when it left Winnipeg. Another original occupant was the Douglass-McIntyre Company, which left the building in the early 1940s. The Western Elevator and Motor Company, and the Power and Mine Supply Company moved in in 1933. The building is now a municipally-designated historic site.
