Long Description:
At 446 Baker Street, this building is right across the street from the Canadian Imperial Bank of Commerce, contemporarily known simply as CIBC. Built in 1897, Lawrence’s Hardware is another collaboration of the architects, the Alexanders, Ewart & Carrie, and it shows. The brick work on the upper two floors of this three storey building is quite impressive.

From a Walking Tour of Nelson’s Heritage Buildings, number 17.

This building was the first three storey structure on Baker Street. Note the highly decorative brickwork facade, arched windows and a high parapet. The cornice projects so far from the parapet that it required the support of cast–iron modillions.
Until this summer, the building's main floor was home to Sonja's China Cabinet, which is closing soon. The upper two floors are still home to several offices, however.
