Historic Sites of Manitoba: Ideal Bedding Building (288 Princess Street, Winnipeg)

This three-storey brick building on Princess Street in Winnipeg, designed by the Toronto architectural firm of Darling and Pearson, was built in 1904 by contractors Saul and Irish, and J. McDiarmid Company as a warehouse for the Ideal Bedding Company. It later hosted a supplier of restaurant and food-handling equipment. The building was demolished in 2017 to make room for an expansion of the adjacent Siloam Mission.
