Historic Sites of Manitoba: Derby Block (102 Derby Street, Winnipeg)

Formerly located on Derby Street in Winnipeg, this three-storey brick building, measuring 36 feet by 80 feet, was designed by local architect Edward George Sherwood and was built in 1911 for owner Frank Moses at a cost of about $25,000. In its original configuration, the building contained 14 residential apartments.

In 1927, alterations to the building were designed by local architect Max Zev Blankstein and completed at a cost of about $1,000.

The building was demolished sometime after 1964 and the site is now part of the David Livingstone School grounds.
