The Earle Building at 534 Yates Street was built in 1899-1900 by architect Thomas Hooper for Thomas Earle, who used is as a warehouse for his wholesale business. The estimated construction cost in 1899 was $10,000.
One prominent architectural feature of the Earle Building is arched facade, which accommodates large south facing windows to allow natural light into the building interior. Architect Thomas Hooper used a similar design on the Vernon Block at 1000-1002 Government Street, which he designed for Charles Vernon in 1899.
