247/251 16th Street
Year Built: 1906
Style: Duplex, Classic Revival
This is one of the four large duplexes built on adjoining lots facing 15th and 16th streets in the years between 1906 and 1910 by S. McClement at a cost of approximately $3,000 each. These yellow brick structures are all very similar in layout and design. The fact that their roof lines are similar to those of Clark Hall at Brandon University and the now demolished Park School suggests that W.A. Elliot may have had a hand in their design. In more recent years these two-family structures have been further split into six or more apartments each.
The Brandon of the 1880's was an outpost of Ontario, connected with the outside by rail and telegraph line.
