Historic Sites of Manitoba: Union Bank Building (841 Corydon Avenue, Winnipeg)

This two-storey brick building on Corydon Avenue in Winnipeg was designed by architect R. E. McDonald and built in 1919 as a branch of the Union Bank of Canada. It began to be used for other commercial purposes following the 1925 merger of the Union Bank with the Royal Bank of Canada.
