55 East Hastings has been home to two theatres (Princess and Lux) and today is the RainCity housing complex (also called Lux).
AAM, personally, made almost as brief an appearance in the Vancouver directory as did his entrepreneurial venture. There is no sign that AAM lived in Vancouver before 1901 and he appears to have left Vancouver by 1903. The occupation that appears next to his name in 1901 and ’02 – even during the year that he ventured into the wine/spirit business – is “Clerk” at the Columbia Hotel. There was a Thomas McWhinnie who was the proprietor of the Columbia Hotel at the time – AAM’s brother or father, perhaps*.
There is nothing in the provincial death records to indicate that AAM died in British Columbia.
*The Columbia Hotel of which Thomas was proprietor was a different – possibly wood frame – building than the one that has stood since the 1920s at 303 Columbia.
