This three-storey brick and stone block on Furby Street in Winnipeg was designed by local architects Samuel Hooper and John Simpson Hooper, and constructed in 1911 by John McQuarrie for owner Mrs. C. Gerrie (probably wife of Charles A. Gerrie) at a cost of about $75,000. The 81 foot by 112 foot building contained 21 residential apartments in its original configuration, but now contains 23.
