Bank of Montreal leaving iconic Portage & Main building

A bronze statue of a First World War soldier stands watch at the corner of Portage Avenue and Main Street. The Bank of Montreal War Monument commemorates the 231 bank employees from across Canada who died in the conflict. It was sculpted by James Earle Farmer and was modeled after Captain Wynn Bagnall, 58th Field Artillery, a member of the bank’s Winnipeg staff.  (MIKE DEAL / WINNIPEG FREE PRESS FILES)
