Photographer: The Stride Studios, 657 Columbia Street, New Westminster BC

Information: Alfred W. McLeod Ltd. possibly in the Westminster Trust Building at 713 Columbia Street. This picture might have been taken just after the move to the Westminster Trust Building. The calendar on the support says "50-52" which may be referring to their old address on 6th Street. They were located at 50 - 6th St. from 1920-1946 and at 713 Columbia St. from 1947-1973. The 1947 B.C. Directory states: "McLeod, Alfred W. Ltd. 'The Insurance Men' Insurance, Loans, Real Estate and Rentals". Ad in the classified section reads, "Forty-Eight Years of Steady Progress - 1899-1947." The 1899 date refers to members of the McLeod family who were insurance agents. Alfred W. McLeod is not listed as a company until 1906. As of 1990, Alfred W. McLeod Ltd. was still in operation.
