Historic Sites of Manitoba: Postal Coat of Arms (Assiniboine Park, Winnipeg)

This coat of arms of Canada originally graced the Garry Street entrance of the annex to Winnipeg’s main post office from 1935 until 1962. A project of the Great Depression, the three-story brick and concrete building was designed by Winnipeg architects Herbert Moody, George Northwood, and C. W. Chivers. The coat of arms remained in storage for 28 years until it found a new home in the English Garden of Assiniboine Park in 1990. The plaque was donated in 1992 by the Heartland Chapter of the Canada Post Heritage Club.
