Memorable Manitobans: Henry James Cull (c1878-1953)


Born in England, he came to Winnipeg in 1912 and, after the First World War, established large greenhouses at 246 Albany Street in St. James where he began growing his own flowers. At one time he operated three florist shops on Portage Avenue under the name of H. J. Cull Limited. In 1925, he lived at 246 Albany Street. He retired to Victoria, British Columbia in 1947, where he died on 27 April 1953.
