The Windsor Hotel was originally called the Victoria Hotel when it opened in 1858, and boasted the city's first brick building. It still stands across the street from here, with bricks now covered in stucco, at the corner of Government and Courtney. The ground floor was entirely occupied by a saloon. Its thick walls withstood an explosion in 1876 when owner George Richardson investigated a gas leak with a lit candle!Image # A-02716 courtesy of British Columbia Archives
