Status of building/structure since photo:
Bastion Square is located on the former site of Fort Victoria, a fur trading fort for the Hudson's Bay Company, which existed from 1843 to 1858. It was eventually enlarged to become the main trading post for the company, when the Oregon Territory treaty placed the US-Canada border at the 49th parallel north; this was a turning point in making Victoria the capital of the Colony of Vancouver Island and, later, the province of British Columbia. As Bastion Square, it is home to the British Columbia Maritime Museum, and several art galleries and cafes; as Fort Victoria, it is a National Historic Site of Canada.
