1944 Hougen's history

98 Hotel

The '98' Hotel building is visible in the background of this scene at Second Avenue and Wood Street. The building had many lives. It was a nightclub, a roller skating rink and eventually a hotel and bar. Across the street was the Royal Canadian Corps of Signals offices and single residence. The R.C.C.S. provided communication throughout the North.
