239 20 Avenue Northwest, Calgary

Year of Construction: 1913

Built between 1911-13, it was inhabited by a few different families over the first few years. From the 20s to early 50s Henry Ashcroft, a fire-fighter, lived here with his family. Subsequently another family bought the house around the early 60s and owned it until 1999 – I believed they lived here for about a decade and rented it out after that.
