Salisbury House in the 1950s

1950s picture shows a Salisbury House in a Texaco gas station beside a Shea's building. Shea's was Winnipeg's beloved beer company on Colony Street that became Labatt's. It is presently where Great-West Life's newer building resides. Where is this picture's location?

John. That Shea's sign there is confounding .... Laurel Courts apartments (154 Osborne) were directly south of the service station at 160 Osborne and Salisbury House at 158 Osborne. Why would an apartment block have a Shea's sign ???

I've had questions about the picture for some time.
