Follow up to last weeks Flashback Picture of the week. This is of course the reconstruction of the Quinte Hotel after the fire of Jan 6, 1907.
Below is a picture shortly after it's completion 1908
April 1907 Belleville city council passed a vote to extend J.V Jenkins (Proprietor) a 15 year fixed taxation rate of $10,000 and a fixed water rate of $100.00 a year over the same period. The cost to rebuild the structure was $150,000
A focal point in the city of Belleville until another fire gutted the building once again December 20, 2012.
Soon to be constructed on this site will be a multi unit Condo, The Pinnacle. I only hope they some how pay tribute to the Hotel which stood for more than 120 years.
