Historic Sites of Manitoba: Stovel Printing Building (365 Bannatyne Street, Winnipeg)

In May 1916, when a building occupied by the Stovel Printing Company were gutted by fire, the firm engaged architects John Woodman and Raymond Carey to design a replacement factory and warehouse. The resulting two-storey structure was erected at a cost of $160,000. Post-construction alterations included a new basement (1959) and new roof, windows and flooring (1977). The building was later sold to the Dominion Construction Company, then to a succession of other owners. It is a municipally-designated historic site.

On 25 March 1920, at a ceremony held at the Manitoba Hall, the company unveiled a brass tablet listing its employees who were killed during service in the First World War.
