Historic Sites of Manitoba: Calder Building / Kaplan Building (661 Main Street, Winnipeg)
This two-storey brick building on Main Street in Winnipeg was constructed in 1912 for Alexander Calder, a private employment and ticket agent for railways and steamships. Around 1940, it became the Kaplan Building when it was taken over by the Kaplan Manufacturing Company. In April 2017, it became a municipally-designated historic site.
