90-1st Street SW, Carman

Built in 1903, this is a fine local example of a familiar residential design common in Manitoba in the late 19th century and the first decade of the 20th century.

Commonly known as southern-Ontario Gothic, these houses featured steep roofs, a distinctive steeply pitched dormer, and decorative wooden fretwork in many of the gable-end crests. The house also suggests a common variation on the theme—the use of an L-shaped plan to give the building even more architectural appeal. The use of red brick, and the resulting opportunity to use brick to create dramatic segmental arches over most of the window openings, makes the house even more attractive.
