Manitoba Business: Frid-Lewis Company
Partners in this Winnipeg-based construction company were James William Frid (President and Managing Director), his brother Herbert Percival Frid (Vice-President), and F. C. Lewis, with offices in the Somerset Block. The company, which operated in Manitoba, Saskatchewan, and Alberta, was dissolved in April 1915, following allegations that it underpaid its workers.
Some of its construction works in Manitoba included:
“New building for Garry Street,” Winnipeg Tribune, 9 May 1911, page 1.
“Knights build a new club house,” Winnipeg Tribune, 3 May 1913, page 1.
“Anthes Foundry one of Winnipeg's active factories,” Winnipeg Tribune, 4 October 1913, page 52.
