This 1886 warehouse is the oldest
brick building in Vancouver. Originally a food warehouse owned by the Oppenheimer brothers (one of whom became Vancouver's second mayor
), it also served as City Hall, jail and morgue for a time right after the Great Fire. Over the years additions have made the building taller and longer. Musician Bryan Adams bought it
in 1991 and turned it into a recording studio, featuring acts such as Michael Buble
, Billy Joel
and others. (1886 photo from the Warehouse Studio).
