Historic Sites of Manitoba: Livinia Court (351 Victor Street, Winnipeg)

This three-storey brick and stone apartment block at the southeast corner of Victor Street and St. Matthews Avenue (formerly Livinia Avenue) in Winnipeg, measuring 80 feet by 93 feet, was designed by local architect Edgar Prain and built in 1911 by Joseph Johnson at a cost of about $60,000. It contained 19 apartments. An annex on the south side at 345 Victor, measuring 26 feet by 60 feet, was constructed at the same time but has since been demolished.
