Historic Sites of Manitoba: Dawson Richardson Building (171 McDermot Avenue, Winnipeg)

Designed by local architect C. S. Bridgman and built in 1921 for Dawson Richardson, a grain broker turned publisher, this building housed the firm that published the Grain Trade News, Western Gardener and The Musical Life and Arts Magazine. A commemorative plaque is mounted near the southeast corner of the building, which is a municipally-designated historic site. In 2017, an interior renovation project received a Conservation Award from Heritage Winnipeg.
