Exploring History: King Street c. 1890
This photograph of the commercial block on King Street in 1890 shows (L to R) the water tower, Mike Greenes’ livery stable (currently Aura on The Lake, the restaurant), the Pacific Hotel, the rear of George A. Clement’s Queen Street building and the apothecary. The Pacific, built circa 1850 at the southeast corner of Market Street, was replaced in 1914 by the station for the Niagara, St. Catharines and Toronto Railway Company. A section of the old hotel was moved to form part of 66 Prideaux St. Note the train track running down King Street at the base of the buildings.
