Federal Revenue Building

201 May Street North
Constructed: 1913
Architect: H.E. Matthews

This building was constructed by the Federal Department of Works to provide an examination and customs warehouse for the City of Fort William. It has a surface of Tyndall (Manitoba) limestone, which contains numerous visible fossils. The structure combines elements from several different popular styles, which was a common feature of federal and public buildings at the time. The windows are separated by pilasters and framed by two-storey arches, as well as rusticated piers. An unusual series of segmented arches is located at sidewalk level.
