 This is one of Vancouver's oldest wooden buildings. When it was built sometime around 1890, it stood "alone in the bushes of Hastings Street; there were some Chinese shacks on Dupont Street near it, but on Hastings Street it was the only building.” It was badly damaged during the Chinatown riots in 1908 but somehow managed to survive that and everything else that subsequent years threw at it.
