entry for more information on those homes.
The water permit, #8365, was issued to the Grandview Land and Trust Co. on November 11, 1905. The city directories show a carpenter by the name of Peter Sausen living at '1540'. Was he responsible for building this home?
This is a Colonial Revival Style: boxy house form with a projecting porch and a hipped roof; more elaborate versions often have a dormer in the middle of the front part of the roof, and bay windows on the second storey.
The Grandview Heritage Group - where I am getting my information - haven't found a building permit for this address but the 1907 City Directory lists this home as new and vacant. It was still vacant in 1908 but from 1909 to 1912, it was occupied by a realtor, George E. Neilson.
Another home with a lost building permit, the house was built in early 1909. The first occupant was Walter Watkins, a secretary. A widow, Agnes Close, lived here in 1910 and early 1911 when it was taken over by a CPR clerk, Duncan Cameron. He was issued a building permit on November 5, 1911 for an $85 repair.
Grandview Heritage Group and I would like to thank them.
I hope you find the beauty around you.
