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.
