Recently I posted a few photographs of the Northern Junk buildings even though at the time I did not know those were them. Since then blogger mates have pointed this out to me which prompted a revisiting of the site. As the oldest standing buildings (circa 1860) in Victoria they are historic and protected as such. They are part of the Johnson St Bridge development and Reliance Properties bought them. I have looked at the plan for this area and the buildings show nicely in it. The question is of course how they, especially their outside appearance, will show by the time everything is said and done. In this design which I downloaded from http://vibrantvictoria.ca/ I circled the two buildings as they are shown facing the waterside.
Below are a few more photos of the buildings in today’s environment starting with the front:
