SAWDUST AND DOORS

9TH AUGUST 2011

It’s hard to imagine today, but just west of Granville Street between 10th and 11th Avenues at the lane was the BC Hardwood Floor Co. Ltd. Their three-storey factory announced in painted signs across the building that they turned out millwork, such as interior trim, sash and doors, stairs, mantles and, of course, hardwood floors.

To make sure no one missed the factory the owners installed a miniature Eiffel Tower-like structure on the roof emblazoned with neon signs on all four sides advertising their products.
