This heritage building can be found on the corner of Commercial and Skinner Street in downtown Nanaimo. It is located across the street from Mon Petit Choux, a nice Cafe with an outdoor patio where one can sit down with a nice cup of coffee to make a sketch like this one.

Since we lived in Nanaimo, several retailers have used this building. It is a busy street with a lot of pedestrians almost any day of the week. It is also listed on the City of Nanaimo heritage register under its original name of Hirst Block.
