Historic Sites of Manitoba: Blankstein House (131 Machray Avenue, Winnipeg)

This two-storey brick house on Machray Avenue in Winnipeg was designed and built by local architect Max Zev Blankstein and built in 1922 at a cost of about $8,000. It would serve as his home and office from 1922 until his death in 1931. Following Blankstein's death, his son Cecil Nathan Blankstein established the architectural firm Green Blankstein Russell and Associates in this house until later moving to other premises.
