77 Welland was the work of the builder/architect team of Simon Black and Ralph I. Williams who were also responsible for three other houses on the north side of Welland Road and four more on Blake Road.

This was the home initially of Edward and Mildred Gordon, who moved here from 175 Rawson Road. Edward Gordon (born c1900) owned a woman's clothing business. He and his wife Mildred (born c1903) were first listed at this address in 1941. The house is still owned by the Gordon family.
