"From 1904 until World War I, this building at 61 Heaton Avenue, Winnipeg, Manitoba, operated as the German Club, described at the time as "the mother society" of the local German immigrant cultural clubs. During the war, the club was forced to discontinue and the building was taken over by the Melotone Talking Machine Company, using the space as a gramophone factory."
