Long Description:
This is because 402 is now a mall (aka "multi purpose complex") - the only one in downtown Nelson. Originally the Hudson's Bay Store, this turn-of-the-century building was completed in 1900, with additions in 1929 and 1953.

The B & W photo was taken shortly after the building opened, in the 1900s. The now photo was taken in July of 2013. They're taken from across the intersection looking southeast.

From a Walking Tour of Nelson’s Heritage Buildings, number 18.

The interior of this Classical Revival brick edifice featured solid oak fittings and maple floors. This emporium sold groceries, liquor, dry goods, clothing, etc. for many years. Its massive liquor cellar was probably the largest in southern British Columbia. Additions were made in 1929 and 1953. It was adapted for reuse as a multi purpose complex in 1982.

Year photo was taken: 1900
