Chalet Hotel up for grabs?

Later this month, the Chalet Hotel on Archibald Street, better known as the home of Teaser's strip club, was to have gone on the block in an auction sale, (that sale has since been postponed / cancelled.).

I thought I would take a look back at the history of the hotel and the site. Though the current structure is circa. 1964, that site has been home to a hotel for over a century. One incarnation was the scene of the bloodiest day in Manitoba policing history.

It turns out this isn't the first time a hotel there has been put up for sale in this manner. The same thing happened when it was known as the Stock yard Hotel in 1920!
