Historic Sites of Manitoba: Bedford Building / Stobart and Sons Building (281 McDermot Avenue, Winnipeg)

This large brick warehouse was designed by James H. Cadham and built in 1903 by Philip Burnett for the wholesale dry goods firm of Stobart, Sons and Company, organized in 1899 by F. W. Stobart. Four years later, two additional floors were added. The company closed in the 1940s and the building has since been occupied by a number of small businesses. It is a municipally-designated historic site.
