Long Description:
Andrew Povinch Building

This building is thought to have been built by Andro Pawlinchuk (Andrew Povinch) in 1920 or 1921 from stuccoed hollow clay block. Povinch rented or leased the building as a general store. It was flanked by a liquor store of similar age and construction on the left and by an older two-storey wooden grocery store on the right, and had a very small house in the back yard. In the early 1950s it hosted a dry cleaning business.
