1000 Denman Street

I updated the page on 1000 Denman Street, which was on the southeast corner of Denman Street and Nelson Street. For most of its life it was a grocery store, chocolate shop, and bakery.

In the 1950s, the site became part of a service station lot, and it later formed part of the Denman Place complex.

I added illustrations and information on the uses of the property over the years.

(Note: in the plan below, the street number appears as “1004” rather than its normal number of “1000.”)

I updated the page on 1873 Beach Avenue, which was on the north side of Beach Avenue, east of Gilford Street. It appears that it was a portion of a store that had 1875 Beach Avenue as its address.

I added historical references and information on the later uses of the property.

I updated the page on 1875 Beach Avenue, which was the site of a series of businesses, including a shoemaker’s business, a confectionery, and a series of grocery stores.

I added historical references and information on the later uses of the property.

I added a brief new page on The Den Grocery, which was at 1178 Denman Street from 1909 to 1911. Ernest Augustus Stowey Daniell (1871-1958) was the proprietor.
