Summerland’s downtown area has gone through quite a few changes over the years.
This picture, from 1993, shows businesses on Main Street near Victoria Road, but none of the businesses in the picture are in Summerland today.
The businesses pictured, from left, are Art Knapps Flower Shop, Downtown Video, Ashton’s Ladies Wear and High Country Sports.
The building at the corner was originally the Summerland Supply Co. building. It is the oldest commercial building in Summerland. It was constructed around 1907.
In 2015, the building was designated as Summerland’s historically significant building.
Today, it is the location of Current Apparel and Tan.
Across the street, and not in the photograph, was the Summerland 5¢ to $1 Store, owned and operated by Edith and Jerry Hallquist from 1949 until 1996.
