Historic Sites of Manitoba: Daylite Building (296 McDermot Avenue, Winnipeg)

The Daylite Building was erected in 1899 as a speculative investment by John D. McArthur. Designed and constructed by James H. Cadham, the original four-storey building on the southeast corner of McDermot Avenue and Princess Street was expanded, in 1904, by an additional two floors designed by J. H. G. Russell and built by S. G. Browne. On completion, the building was shared by the Ames Holden Shoe Company of Montreal and the Bole Drug Company owned by D. W. Bole and W. W. Bole. More recently, the building (a municipally-designated historic site) has been occupied by a range of businesses.
