History

Cultural EventsBrigadeMenu and CocktailsGastronomic ActivitiesTestimonialsFacilitiesEquipmentClients ListParking and LocationHistory of the Building

Built in the 1920s, the building that houses Gallery Gora has had quite a history. From the 1920’s to the early 1950’s, it was used by Teller Motor Sales Ltd, a dealership for Chrysler, Plymouth, and Ford automobiles. The upper levels, which were once used as a mechanic shop, now house contemporary art. Originally, the showroom was located on the ground floor and it later housed a Royal Bank of Canada branch. Today, the 3rd generation of the Teller family still maintains its ownership of the building.
