A Brief History of 533 Yates Street

533 Yates Street was built in 1887 as a warehouse and office for Boucherat & Co., Liquor Merchants. Soon after the building was finished, Boucherat & Co. became Pither & Leiser, which continued to operate a wholesale liquor business in this building.

Pither & Leiser outgrew this building and built the adjacent building at 535 Yates Street in 1900 as its new warehouse and office.

We will be adding more history of this building in the near future.
