Historic Sites of Manitoba: Winkler House (923 Dorchester Avenue, Winnipeg)
This 2½-storey wood frame house on Dorchester Avenue in Winnipeg was constructed in 1912 for Valentine Winkler and his family. The Winklers lived here until 1927, or possibly early 1928, until it was occupied by physician William Porteous McCowan (1891-1930).
