1954 Georgia Street was one of four similar houses on the south side of Georgia Street, near the intersection with Chilco Street. (The page on Whitfield Walker Stuart has a more detailed view of the store in front of 1974 Georgia Street.)
The four houses on Georgia Street were essentially the same design, although two were mirror images of the others.
The following photograph shows 1954 Georgia Street, with a portion of 1964 Georgia Street on the right.
This photograph shows a detail of the front porch of 1954 Georgia Street.

From the 1920s onward, the house offered rental accommodation.
In 1942, the property was for sale. The advertisement also referred to a store in front (probably with an address of 1950 Georgia Street) and a garage in back, which faced Alberni Street).
The house continued to offer rooms for rent.
The rooming house business was for sale in 1948.
In the late 1940s, A.J. McBain was selling marine engines at 1950 West Georgia Street, which appears to be the store that was at the front of the lot.
The house was for sale again in the late 1940s and the early 1950s.
In June 1955, house wreckers were demolishing the house.
The property later became part of the site of the Laguna Parkside apartment building, which has an address of 1925 Alberni Street. (Further information appears on the page for the Horse Show Building.)
