CVA 99-3479 – Chevrolet Sales Co (according to CVA this is “car lot 1105 Granville Street”, but in fact is 933 W Pender Street). ca1924. Stuart Thomson photo.

Screen Shot 2015-05-25 at 8.22.22 AMThis fine image by Stuart Thomson was made ca1924 at the 900 block of West Pender Street – not the 1100 block of Granville Street. There are at least three clues to the actual location: (1) Abbotsford Hotel (still standing today at 921 W Pender; known today as “Days Inn”) is just behind the Chevy lot; (2) the 1924 BC Directory shows a Chevy lot at 933 W Pender; (3) a magnified look at the image shows the number “933” pretty clearly on the glass door of the pictured dealership.
