** New**
I have added "hotspots" on the Building Signs, that I can read.
 (note- some signs are illegible and no hot spot on them)
Also some of the buildings I have identified with a hotspot around them.
Note- Not all buildings are identified.
Move your Mouse over the picture, slowly, and you should be able to read
what the sign says, or the name of the building if there is a hotspot there..
If you add my site to "Compatibly View settings" under the "Tools" button, in IE
you will see the words appear as you mouse over the pictures.
It may or may not work in some browsers.

If you don't see any words appear on the mouse over,
 try clicking once on the sign or building, wherever a hand symbol appears,
and you will go to an index, below the picture, for the whole story.

Those using Touch Screens, sorry,
 you need to click to see the write up below the picture
Another reason I hate touch screens!

From what I can figure out Centre St became 4th st. today
All this would be where the Rupert Mall sits today.

It has been very difficult to figure out the exact location.

Welcome to Prince Rupert sign on Arch

On right side, with flag obstructing part of roof,
was the "Prince Rupert Inn & Annex", aka "Grand Trunk Hotel"

Small Gauge Rail line can be seen running up the hill,
Used to deliver freight and goods to the stores up the hill.

I believe that was the Premier Hotel
 up on the hill in the background, it existed in 1908

Return to Picture1 above

Little building below the Union Jack, close to the middle of the picture,
plastered with white signs on all sides,
was Dr. John Oatts Reddie's Drug Store, on Center St.
1910 directory says it was on 2nd ave, near the Court House.
Dr. John Oatts Reddie MB, CM
b- Dec 22, 1858 in Stirling, Stirling, Scotland
d- Aug 29, 1912 in Prince Rupert, age 53.
buried in Fairview Cemetery, Prince Rupert BC
First Prince Rupert Medical Health Officer.
Grad Univ. of Scotland in 1884
Came to Prince Rupert from Colorado Springs in 1907.
son of David Rennie, and Jane Spittal
he was married to Mary Helen "Nellie" Reddie, nee Morrison
b- 1860, d- 1948
daughter of William Morrison and Lillias Stirrat

Return to Picture1 above

Right front, was the First City Hall,
based on writing on another postcard I have seen online,
This building later became the Bank of Commerce, flag pole on dormer.
1910 directory says the City Hall on Center St was Temporary.
I thought the City Hall on Fulton st. ,shown on my Archive page 3, was the first,
then the Art Deco one on 3rd ave,
 originally built as a Federal Building, Post Office, in 1938, was the 2nd.
But it appears they were 2nd and 3rd.
