This limestone house in the Tuxedo area of Winnipeg was built in the 1950s for Kenneth A. Powell by Frank Lount and Sons Builders. Lount built many homes in Tuxedo, most of them in the mid-1930s, and most on speculation, including 137 Handsart, 131 Grenfell sold to Oliver Pollard in 1935, and 139 Grenfell bought by Dr. Charles W. Burns also in 1935.
