Built in 1913, at the end of the ‘Age of Optimism,’ this triplex represents early multi-unit housing and offers a glimpse into the lives of young, working-class men central to early Ritchie. Early residents of include miners like George Holt (1921-1925), CPR employees like Harry Mockford (1928), Gainers employees like Harold V. Clutton (1920) and tradespeople like James Waters (1917-1919). Throughout the decades, the Tri-Plex housed Ritchie’s working-class residents, and the structure serves as a reminder of the early labour force that defined Ritchie’s early years.
