Historic Sites of Manitoba: Argyle Block (224 Notre Dame Avenue, Winnipeg)

This four-storey brick building on Notre Dame Avenue in Winnipeg was designed by architect Paul M. Clemens and constructed in 1908 for the Argyle Land Company. The following year, it was sold to businessman Frank Lindsay who, in 1923, sold it to grain merchant James Richardson. Photographer Charles I. Meyers operated a photography studio on its main floor from 1925 to 1940. Other businesses had offices on the second floor while the third and fourth floors contained residential suites. The building is now a municipally-designated historic site.
