Historic Sites of Manitoba: Carruthers House (207 Park Boulevard, Winnipeg)

This house in the Tuxedo area of Winnipeg was built in 1927 for George Carruthers. The architects and builders here were Sparrow Brothers who had their premises at 415 Academy Road near Queenston Street. Although they built in several different styles, the builders seem to have been strongly influenced by the two early Tuxedo houses in the Georgian style. The colour is not the original one, which was white.
