I still Don't know all the details of this company but I have a few. this is a list of the known addresses and approximate dates they when they when located at them. Now on the early location I'm not sure if it's one in the same as the next because there was no street # given....I'm just providing what is shown in the Vancouver city directories. 1889-1891 6th Ave & Scotia St.1891-1898 97 6th Ave E1899-1900 241 6th Ave E1901-1927 795 Beatty & corner of Robson1928-1935 1460 Burrard St.

This is the Thorpe & Co. Ltd display at the 1930 Vancouver Pacific National Exhibition. Interesting to note they carried a line of Ginger Ale called 'Country Club'...also seen on the sides of the trucks in 1933. Is that a direct connection to Country Club Beverages that started in 1935?
