Memorable Manitobans: Joshua Calloway (1830-1921)

Realtor, municipal official.

Born at Northemptonshire, England on 16 June 1830, he came to Winnipeg in 1879 where he opened an office as a manufacturers agent. He went into real estate at the time of the Winnipeg land boom of 1881-82 and remained in this business for the remainder of his life. He served on the Winnipeg city council as an alderman for Ward 3 in 1884, and from 1886 to 1891. He was also on the Winnipeg School Board from 1883 to 1890. He died at his Winnipeg home, 1109 Portage Avenue, on 4 October 1921.
