Increased freight traffic on Canadian National Railway lines led to construction of a massive, four-storey warehouse and freight-forwarding facility in the southern half of the CNR’s East Yards.

Located at the junction of the Assiniboine and Red rivers in downtown Winnipeg, the yards were shared by Canadian Northern and Grand Trunk Pacific railways during the early 1900s. In 1917-23, along with three other financially troubled systems, they amalgamated into the publicly owned CNR.
