242 Princess Street - The Bathgate Block

242 princess Street over the decades

Built for businessman William Bathgate in 1882 - 83, the Bathgate Block at 242 Princess Street is one of the city's oldest commercial buildings. It is also one of the few remaining examples the work of prolific architects Barber and Barber, best known for their old "gingerbread" Winnipeg city hall.

I recently posted about it in at my blog West End Dumplings. Check out that post for more photos and background information and its current state.
