600 Block of Gervais Street600 Gervais Street
Today’s Vista district is a blend of three centuries’ worth of commercial, industrial, residential, and spiritual architecture. Many examples of important historic buildings remain. Others, such as the former DuPre fruit and produce business (shown here in 1900), have been lost over time. Where once the family’s masonry warehouse stood now rests a railway cut that diverts trains from crossing Gervais Street.
