  • A letter received from the campus states that the safes were located on the 2nd & 3rd floors of the original building built at 160 Princess St. in 1898. When renovations were made recently, the doors of the safes were moved to the first floor.

  • When were the safes brought to Winnipeg and installed?

  • What company(ies) required the safes?

  • What is known about the manufacturers of these safes?
