Scope and content

10123 - 136 Street.
This house is the work of prominent Edmonton architect, George Heath MacDonald, who had already designed several of the city's important public buildings in the neo-classical style. However on this project he experimented with modernism, seeming to incorporate some elements of Art Deco, Moderne, and International Style.
MacDonald worked on this house for his friend Lou Hyndman. Born in Edmonton in 1904, Hyndman practiced law in the city after graduating from the University of Alberta. Premier E.C. Manning appointed him Master in Chambers in the Alberta Supreme Court, a position he held for more than twenty-five years. Hyndman chaired the Edmonton Planning Committee, and served on the Edmonton Public School Board. Louis and Muriel's son Lou Hyndman Jr. became well known as the MLA for Glenora and as provincial treasurer in the Lougheed government. The family owned this home from 1946 to 2002.
