    Factoids are so interesting. Do you have any idea when the Birtch Bros. building on McBean street was built?

      Yes. Lyon bought the land in 1843 and the day (credit account) book for that stone store starts in 1844. I assume that is when the building was constructed. There is a post about it on richmondheritage.ca
