the 2nd CPR station for Vancouver, designed by Edward Maxwell, and it opened in 1898 (the first was just a pile of wood). It's currently a parking lot underneath that elevated plaza between the Vancouver Sun tower and the 3rd CPR station, now Waterfront station, built in 1914 by Barott, Blackader, and Webster
What Great looking building ,a lot of work went into those old CPR buildings, from Coast to Coast every outstanding & grandiose style buildings of te era were generally owned by CPR (or Banks) ..............they sure had style, most of the famous old buldings still around are now owned by Fairmont .....Chateau Frontenac , The Emperess Hotel, Chateau Lake Louise,...etc etc ............Great & as Guy says 'Grand Old Building'
