Union Bank Building, Carman

The Union Bank Building, from 1896, is an excellent example of the kind of modest commercial establishment that defined the main commercial thoroughfares of small-urban centres throughout Manitoba in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. The simple symmetrically-composed red-brick fa├žade is slightly enlivened with the use of a banding feature that separates the two storeys, and a bracketed cornice at the roofline.

The Union Bank, a major player in small western Canadian communities, merged with the Royal Bank of Canada in 1925, and that bank provided local services here until 1942. Since that time the building has provided accommodation for a variety of offices and services.
