The advertisement depicts the Brackman-Ker Milling Company facility (now demolished) at what was then called the Outer Wharf. It is now Ogden Point, where cruise ships dock when visiting Victoria.
The Brackman Ker Milling Company was a leading business in Victoria during the late 19th and early 20th century and its owner, David Russell Ker, was a leading figure in Victoria business circles.
Here are some extant Victoria buildings associated with David Russell Ker and the Brackman-Ker Milling Company:

Brackman-Ker Milling Company moved its offices and warehouse here from 1407 Government Street when this building was completed in 1907.
