Bank of Commerce


Sympathetically rehabilitated in 1997, the Bank of Commerce is Nanaimo's premier example of Classical Period Revival architecture. Built in 1914 during the 1912-1914 coal miner's strike, the building's classical conservatism represented tradition, stability and prosperity during a fractious and volatile period. Built to standard plans designed by Bank of Commerce staff architect Victor Horsburgh, the building transcends mere copying and responds dramatically to its prominent downtown corner location.
