Occupants | Photos & Maps | Sources

This two-storey brick house in the Armstrong’s Point area of Winnipeg was designed by local architect William Wallace Blair and built in 1906 for merchant Thomas Ryan. It was renovated into a duplex in 1940 and a quadruplex in 1962, being used for a time as a nursing home, a residence for Inuit children from the North West Territories, and a home for a group of artists before reverting to a single-family residence.
