Historic Sites of Manitoba: Taylor Building (177 McDermot Avenue, Winnipeg)

Erected by businessman and politician Thomas W. Taylor in 1882, this building was home for his printing business until 1968, though Taylor himself died in 1924. The firm specialized in bookbinding and the printing of account books, legal forms, and blank cheques, as well as a range of other printing services. With redevelopment of the area in the early 1970s, the building housed an art studio and interior design firm, later a restaurant, modelling academy, and fitness studio. It is a municipally-designated historic site.
