Owned at the time by A. D. Irish & H. Benard.  I wonder if Mr. Irish was related to Wm. Irish, a contractor who developed Spence Street?
This Fort Rouge home was owned by Mr. A. Strang
A block of houses, a dog and a manhole cover, all on Bannatyne Avenue
The Colony Street home of D. E. McKenty
A Dr. Chown lived here
Just look at the fancy chimneys on this one.  It belonged to Dr. A. W. Moody.
Still on the medical theme, this was the home of Dr. Harvey Smith
The magnificent home of E. J. Bawlf at 11 Kennedy Street.  Built in 1897 sadly now demolished.
A gentleman by the name of E. S. Griffin once lived here
Note the children standing outside
And this belonged to G. Hastings.  I wonder if they sold curved furniture in those days to fit into all those round rooms?
These two belonged to H. B. Belcher and Mr. Evans respectively
The dome on this house, belonging to James Sutherland at the time, looks like a fellow wearing glasses and a toque!
This is Government House, home of the Lieutenant Governor at 10 Kennedy Street.  On the right you can see what the front lawn looked like in the early 1900's.
This was the home of wholesale grocer J. F. Galt.  A very lucrative business by the look of it!
This interesting one belonged to J. F. Mitchell, who was a manufacturer and dealer in photographic supplies.  I don't know the location of this one, but judging by the ditch, I have to wonder if it was in Charleswood.
This little pile was owned by hardware tycoon J. H. Ashdown, and located at 337 Broadway Avenue.  Built in 1897, he moved to 529 Wellington in 1913, which has now become a restaurant of the same name.  This property was taken over by the Adanac Club, and later became the Music & Arts building which was later a U 0f M faculty.  St. Johns College took over the building in 1945 until they moved on campus in 1962, it was then demolished and now the Monarch Life building is on the land.
Obviously law was as lucrative then as it is today, this home belonged to Stanley Hough K.C.
Wouldn't you think that someone who could afford a house like this could spring for a bigger fence, and a gate or two?  This belonged to J. Tees.
Judge Walker resided here
Still on a legal theme, this home belonged to barrister J. W. Allen
This house belonged to a Mr. Bell.  I don't know who he was, but there was a Bell Block on Donald Street and a Bell Hotel on Main around the same time, so possibly he had something to do with one or both of those.
These homes were/are on Edmonton, and belonged to Mr. McCutcheon and Mr. Lemon.  I wonder what that sign said on the boulevard?  Keep off the grass maybe?
This one belonged to Mrs. W. H. Culver.  I wonder how many rooms it had?
This was the S. H. Strevel residence.  I wonder what the piece on top was used for?
Hardware manufacturers agent Thomas Black lived here.  You can find his business on the relevant page.

Very fashionable at the time was the cresting and finials on top of so many houses and public buildings, yet when I wanted to put some on top of my new sunroom in 2012 I had to import it from the UK!
This was the Westminster Residential Block
Banker W. J. Alloway once lived in this residence.  It might have been on Kennedy Street, but wouldn't swear to it.  There is another notice on the boulevard!
We finish with the home of W. J. Hammond, whose  furrier store you will find in the business section, along with a photo of his workers busily making garments for fashionable and genteel ladies.
Had an e-mail from Allan Gray in Austin, Texas with some information on this one.  Here is what he said:

"That would be 104 Colony St. (1911 census)  and that would be Dr. Donald McKenty whose 1938 Obituary from Canadian Medical Association I attach.

He would be the Grandfather of Betty Jane McKenty whose father was the Dr. Jack mentioned in the Obit and she would be now known as Betty Jane Wylie quite famous Canadian author, playwright etc. who is an Order of Canada person,  one of three in a single classroom at Gordon Bell High School (now Mulvey they say) in the mid '40s."
And here is the obituary:
'Dr. Donald McKenty of Winnipeg, died of coronary occlusion on December 3rd at his home.  He was born on Amhurst Island, Lake Ontario in 1870 and came to Winnipeg in 1887 to visit his uncle who, at that time, owned the Manor Hotel.  On his uncle's death he entered the Manitoba Medical college and graduated at the age of 46.  He practiced in Winnipeg until the time of his death.  He is survived by his widow, three sons and two daughters.  Two of his sons, Jack and Vincent are practising medicine in Winnipeg.'
Thanks Allan, that's wonderful!

The Nicholas Bawlf house at 11 Kennedy St. has been razed, the corner lot at Assiniboine Ave. left treed and grassy. For years it was a sad survivor of a stately home. The tower, pillared porticos, broad steps and shining windows went the way of servants, horses and coachmen.

Nicholas Bawlf was born in Smith's Falls July 15, 1849. He heard the call of the west, arriving here in 1877. He started with a flour and feed store, became a founder of the Grain Exchange in 1887, and built his brick and stone home in 1897.
If you would like to read more about this beautiful house and fascinating family, I urge you to check out this page on the Manitoba Historical Society website.

Received an e-mail from a fellow called Walt who knows all about this house and its owner, here is what he says:

The House of J. Lemon  at 420 Edmonton Street
The house was built in 1899 and demolished in 1977.
Joe and his family moved into the home he built on Dec 31, 1899, he wanted to start the new century in the home he built for his family.
His son Ewart Roy Lemon died in 1908 at the age of 19, and Joe passed away in 1925.  Maggie his wife passed away in 1955.
His daughter Della Louise Lemon  passed away in Oct of 1977.
Della lived in the house for 77 years from Dec. 31 1899 to Feb, of 1977, directly  across from Central Park and The Wadell Fountain.
My brother and I had the great adventure of staying at 420 Edmonton when ever we went downtown for a a decade.  We called her Great Aunt Della, no relation to us just a very nice lady.
The house on the corner, 424 Edmonton Street, McCutcheon sold the house shortly after it was built in 1903.  The family who lived there for a long time was Mrs. E. J. Rogers.
Joe lemon was general Manager of the Manitoba Cartage company until he passed in 1925, he was a Sportsman, and Business man.  He was a founding member of The Granite Curling Club and The St. Charles Country club and a Winnipeg Pioneer.  Thank you very much for the information Walt, it's great to know!
