I’ve always liked this building at the south west corner of Hanna & Parent. I like how it has a mix of architectural elements that are not found in other apartments around town.
I don’t have any information on it, other than it doesn’t show up in the 1924 directory (in fact there is nothing built on the west side of Parent, between Ottawa and Hanna), but it does show up on the 1937 Fire Insurance map.
If I had to guess, I would think it was built around 1927-1929.
I like the little copper roofed awning over the door along Parent Ave.
I also like the stone trim on the corner. According to the Fire Insurance map, the first two spaces along Parent were originally retail spaces.
I bet it looked much better with the original doors and windows. However, it’s still a good looking building, and a unique part of our heritage.
