Sometimes, a city's most nondescript building holds the greatest memories for those living there.
My latest post for Winnipeg Downtown Places looks at 314-320 Donald Street which was a Winnipeg entertainment mecca for nearly a century with Saratoga Bowling Lanes opening in 1906 and Stag Billiards Hall in 1913. A few major fires later the building is now government offices.
One thing I was never able to figure out is who was Maidie Surtees ? I noticed the memorial out front many years ago but, despite everything that is online nowadays, can't find any sign of her (or who the son was who put it there).
If you know, drop me a line and I will gladly add it in !
