Historic Sites of Manitoba: Krendle Block (141 Hallet Street, Winnipeg)

This two-storey brick building at the northwest corner of Euclid Avenue and Hallet Street in Winnipeg, measuring 35 feet by 37 feet, was designed by local architect Max Zev Blankstein and built in 1911 for owner John Krendle at a cost of about $5,500. It contained two retail spaces on the main floor with two residential apartments on the second floor. At the time of a 2022 site visit, it was used fully as a private residence.
