Historic Sites of Manitoba: Travellers’ Block (283 Bannatyne Avenue, Winnipeg)

The Travellers Block was erected on Bannatyne Avenue in 1907 as headquarters for the North West Commercial Travellers’ Association. Architects Darling and Pearson provided many amenities such as meeting rooms, lounges, and even a Turkish bath in this municipally-designated historic site. A plaque is mounted on the southeast corner of the Gault Building.
