The Halse Block
The Bank of BC, a men's haberdashery and various other tenants have occupied this commercial building through the years.
This heritage building was the hub of activity between the harbour and the train station back in the day and remains an active hub today. I would expect the majority of visitors to downtown Nanaimo walk past this intersection on their way to the theater, art galleries, restaurants or harbour and cultural events.
Today it is home to Senini Graphics on the second floor and Power House Living Foods on the street level.
