Historic Sites of Manitoba: The Pas Telephone Exchange Building (154 Third Street West, The Pas)

This one-storey brick building on Third Street West in The Pas was designed by Winnipeg architect Alexander D. Melville and built in 1928 and to house local circuitry for Manitoba Government Telephones. In 1958, an addition was made to the west side of the building along with modifications to the front facade. Today, the only east wall of original building is visible.
