A Brief History of 1720 Store Street
1720 Store Street was built in 1908 as a warehouse for R.J. Nott. The original building permit, issued to R.J. Nott by the City of Victoria in June 1908, describes a “new brick building, 1 storey, 1 room, purpose: warehouse” with an estimated construction cost of $3,000.00.
