This one-storey brick building on Garry Street in Winnipeg, measuring 50 feet by 120 feet, was designed by local architects John Woodman and Raymond Marwood-Elton Carey. It was built in 1911 by contractor John McQuarrie at a cost of about $17,800 as a garage for the Hudson’s Bay Company. In 1974, the interior was gutted and renovated for use as a restaurant. In January 2019, it became a municipally-designed historic building.
