James Morton Lethridge (1877-1943) was an English architect and civil engineer who spent much of his career in Winnipeg, Canada.[1]

Early life[edit]

James Lethbridge was born in Edmonton, London, the third of seven children of George Lethbridge (1848-1924) and Jessie Naismith Morton (1849-1936).[2][3] His father was an architect who had been in practice in the City of London since 1870[4] and the Presbyterian family lived in Highgate at 205 Archway Road.[1] At the age of seventeen James was articled to his father, from 1894 to 1898, and subsequently worked as assistant to three further architects, Charles Fitzroy Doll for six months, Joseph Douglass Mathews for nine months, and Ralph Selden Wornum for a year and a half, before passing his qualifying exam in 1902. He worked in London for a further four years before emigrating to Canada in May 1906.[5]


He settled and worked as an architect and civil engineer in Winnipeg for nearly twenty years, living at 3 University Place,[1] apart from a break between 1916 and 1918 when he enlisted as a Lieutenant in the 2nd Field Troop, Canadian Engineers, Overseas Expeditionary Force.[1] He is likely to been employed as an assistant by other architects as well as working on his own from an office in the McIntyre Block.[6] Only a few of his projects in Winnipeg have been found which can be directly attributed to him including;

Kildonan, 54 Ferry Road, North Kildonan (1907), a large house for Herbert Creasey Whellams, a Lancashire born Market Gardener.[6][7]

Odd Fellow’s Hall, Fort Rouge (1913)[6]

Halpenny House, 6 East Gate (1913), for Jasper Halpenny, a physician and surgeon[6]

Norberry Public School, 900 St. Mary's Road, St. Vital (1921 with additions in 1923), for the Woodlawn School District.

Lethbridge left Winnipeg after 1924, when he moved back to England.[7]
