Historic Sites of Manitoba: Dodge Cottage (17 Lake Drive, Ponemah, Dunnottar)

This cottage on Lake Drive in Dunnottar was built in 1937 by Harold Dodge, chief draftsman at Dominion Bridge. It retains its original windows, doors, siding, and pantry shelves, and has a fieldstone fireplace. There is also a Servel fridge built in the 1940s; it has no compressor, no moving parts, and it still works.
