Historic Sites of Manitoba: McIntyre Block (416 Main Street, Winnipeg)

Built in 1898 by contractor Sinclair B. Ritchie, for entrepreneur Alexander McIntyre, this massive brick building on Main Street replaced an earlier structure on the site destroyed by fire. Originally just five storeys, two more floors were added in 1908. The building provided office space for a wide range of retail and professional companies. It was demolished in 1979 and the site became a parking lot.
