Context: HERITAGE SIGNIFICANCE

By 1918 the prosperity of Strathcona was well displayed in its many substantial commercial and public buildings and its fashionable neighbourhood on the rim of the valley. The house at 10311 Saskatchewan Drive is representative of this 'coming of age' built as it was on the northerly edge of Strathcona, in a neighbourhood typified by large houses. S.Q. O'Brien, a successful lumber merchant had the house built in a style somewhat different than most of the houses on the street. His role in the lumber industry, and his access to a variety of evolving North American building patterns may have contributed to this relatively unique incursion of common style into the larger homes of the merchant upper middle class.
