Historic Sites of Manitoba: Dingle and Stewart Warehouse (263-265 Stanley Street, Winnipeg)

A two-storey brick warehouse on Stanley Street in Winnipeg was designed by local architect James Henry Cadham and constructed in 1903 by Davidson Brothers and Jon Jonnson Vopni. In early September 1903, the fruit and confectionary firm of Dudley Dingle, Guy Dingle, and Duncan Daniel Stewart relocated operations here from their former quarters at 288 Portage Avenue. It was expanded to four storeys in 1910, again based upon designs of Cadham and built by the Davidson Brothers.
