Historic Sites of Manitoba: Ivymore Cottage (14 Nelson Avenue, Dunnottar)

This cottage at Dunnottar was built in 1923 and owned by an executive of the Canadian Pacific Railway. In 1936, it was sold to an engineer for the Manitoba Telephone System. The present owners bought it from Mrs. Lamothe, daughter of the engineer. The structure has a wraparound verandah with wainscotting, and period artifacts and artwork in various rooms. In 1930, it had a communal shower in the back yard used by all the neighbours.
