Designed in 1908 by Victorian architects Thomas Hooper and Charles Elwood WatkinsThis building is a good example of Edwardian commercial architecture. It was built for William James Marble as a carriage factory, replacing the original wooden structure from 1885. Early painted signage is still visible on the east fa?ade. In 1938, the building was sold and run as a furniture store on the main floor and with offices above. In the 1970s, the site became the home of the Salvation Army Thrift Shop and, 20 years later, the 711 Bingo and Snack Bar. It was briefly used by Our Place during the construction of their new premises and was restored in 2009 as the Access Health Centre by Victoria Cool Aid Society and AIDS Vancouver Island.
