This two-storey brick structure on Middle Gate in the Armstrong’s Point area of Winnipeg was designed by local architect Walter Chesterton and constructed by builder Sinclair Balsor Ritchie in 1896 for William Johnston Tupper. Named “Elmhurst” by the Tupper family, it was duplexed in 1949 by owner Fred May and, at that time, acquired a second address, 155 East Gate.
