John H.G. Russell, one of the city’s best-known
and most prolific architects, designed 545 Broadway. It
is one of a series of buildings that appeared in a prominent
residential district along Broadway, west of the Legislative
Building, Fort Osborne Barracks and All Saints Anglican
Church, during Winnipeg's pre-World War I development boom.
This grand, Queen Anne structure was built in 1904
at a cost of $9,000 and involved seven separate contractors.
It was built on the north side of Broadway between Colony
and Good streets for Robert R. Wilson of Campbell Brothers
and Wilson Company, wholesale grocers.
