Historic Sites of Manitoba: Bank of Montreal Building (464 Stradbrook Avenue, Winnipeg)

This one-storey brick and stone structure at the southwest corner of Stradbrook Avenue and Osborne Street in Winnipeg, measuring 40 feet by 57 feet, was designed by local architect Samuel Frank Peters and built in 1905 as a branch of the Bank of Montreal by contractor Robert Watson at a cost of about $22,000. The bank occupied the building until the branch closed in 1999.

It became a municipally-designated historic building in 2017.
