This building was constructed in 1924 as the
Canadian Pacific Marine Terminal building.
Designed by the architectural partnership
of F.M. Rattenbury and P.L. James it became
headquarters for the Canadian Pacific
British Columbia Coast Steamship Service
and gateway to Victoria for passengers
travelling aboard C.P.R. coastal vessels.
Its imposing classical presence continued
to enhance the experience of countless
visitors and allied armed forces personnel
through the 1930's, 1940's, & beyond. The last
ship on a regular run to land passengers
at this site was the "Princess Marguerite"
then a Canadian Pacific steamship. In 1963
C.P. moved to another adjacent location,
the building played an important role in
the capital's maritime history, so that it
may continue to grace the waterfront, in
1978 it came under the stewardship of the
Provincial Capital Commission.
