I was leaving the Winnipeg Architecture Foundation's website launch at city hall last week and had to do a double take when I saw a fully lit (and functioning) main hall at the Union Bank Tower, now the Paterson Globalfoods Institute.
The hall was a Union Bank, then Royal Bank, branch until about 1992 when it moved to a newly built location at Main and James. For a couple of decades it sat in darkness and is now Red River College's Jane's restaurant.
