Description

The house at 2617 Pandora Street is one of at least four structures built on three adjoining lots on the northwest corner of Pandora and Penticton Streets (formerly Clinton St) between 1908 and 1912 by Scotsman, William Michael McGavin, the local post-master and grocer. In 1908 he built a 2 storey corner store/butcher shop and post office with apartments above called ‘Clinton Grocery’. William’s brother was the owner of McGavin’s bread, which you can still find today in local stores, and McGavin Bread Basket stores around Metro Vancouver. In 2018, the homeowners restored the exterior using Kitsilano Gold, with Hastings Red accents from the Vancouver Heritage Foundation’s True Colours Palette.
