1907 - Carrie (S) Beaux Arts Classical Revival. This structure, faced with Kootenay marble and displaying ionic pilasters with strong Greek Classical Revival features, is striking in its sense of grandeur. The upper floor contained sleeping quarters at one time used by resident staff. The building emanated an aura of confidence in the economic stability of the Queen City. Text provided by Patricia A.
