Historic Sites of Manitoba: McLaughlin Carriage Building (206-210 Princess Street, Winnipeg)

The southern part of this Winnipeg building was designed by local architect James Henry Cadham and built in 1902 by Philip Burnett for the McLaughlin Motor Car Company of Oshawa, Ontario. The northern part was added in 1906. The company was sold to General Motors in 1918, which owned the building until 1942.

In 2017, it became a municipally-designated historic building.
