Historic Sites of Manitoba: St. James Anglican Church (195 Collegiate Street, Winnipeg)

This Anglican church on Collegiate Street in Winnipeg was built in 1922 to replace an earlier church to the east. A window in the church was designed by artist Leo Mol. Honour Rolls inside the church identify parishioners who served and were killed during the First World War and Second World War.
