The Dr. L.A. Miller Residence, located in the affluent Glenora community, is a rare, local example of a Streamline Moderne home
This home was constructed in 1937 by local home builder George Prudham, and would first be occupied by Dr. L.A. Miller the following year. Miller was among one of the Edmonton first ethnic immigrants, having arrived here with his family from Hungary in 1899. His brother Abe would go onto be a successful municipal and provincial politician in the mid-century
The home itself displays strong Streamline Moderne elements, from its horizontal banding near its roofline, to its 90 degree corner windows. Typical of the style the home is clad in an earthly coloured stucco, and features contrasting seafoam coloured windows, all of which are neatly grouped into pairs of threes. Its front entrance sports a curved vestibule and rounded awning, while the door itself displays a Deco chevron motif. As with many moderne and early internationalist homes, the Miller Residence makes use of a strong horizontal composition with a flat roof
The Dr. L.A. Miller Residence is among the most architectural unique homes in Glenora. It underwent a substantial renovation a decade ago, where it gained a sympathetically styled addition over top its built-in garage. The home is currently listed on the City’s Inventory of Historic Resources and is eligible for designation.
