Display Building II

Display Building II, (1913) Brandon, Manitoba

  

A few years ago this building was on Heritage Canada’s top ten most threatened list but a miraculous transformation has occurred. This grand Beaux-Arts style building was constructed in 1913 for agricultural display at the annual Dominion Exhibition. As heritage advisor, Craig is responsible for providing technical guidance on the restoration of building envelope and structural repair.
