Three-storey Earl Grey is truly one of Winnipeg’s grand old schools with an impressive façade and a pair of asymmetrical entrance towers. Costing nearly $160,000 to build, construction began in 1914 during the city’s boom time when population growth was exploding.

At one time, both signatures on Canadian paper money were Earl Grey graduates: James E. Coyne was a former Governor of The Bank of Canada, and Robert E. Beattie, a former Deputy Governor.
