The unusual architecture of this well-preserved 1911 building make it stand out on this block of century-old buildings in Chinatown.  The style is called "Victorian Italianate" and it reflects the wide variety of architectural designs for commercial buildings in the early years of the 20th century. It housed the Great Northern Transfer Company for many years, adding to its heritage value. (1914 photo from Vancouver City Archives).
