A Brief History of 503 Yates Street

Here are some links to some historic photos of this building:

This single storey building at 503 Yates Street, on the south east corner of Yates Street and Wharf Street, was built circa 1870. The earliest photograph we have found of the building shows it as being occupied by F. Neufelder & Co.

F. Neufelder & Co. came to a tragic end in 1879 when Felix Neufelder became despondent over some poor investments he had made and shot himself in this building, which at that time was the F. Neufelder & Co. warehouse. Felix Neufelder is buried in Ross Bay Cemetery.

For most of its history this building has been used either as a warehouse or for light industrial uses.

It is now a restaurant.
