Historic buildings in Belize City, William Quan store at the corner of Orange and Albert Street

It's almost in the middle of the aerial photo with the white zinc roofing...what is now the William Quan store at the corner of Orange and Albert Streets. At the time the picture of the building was taken it was owned by Cuevas and Company and it was a pharmaceutical company.

Actually there are three historical buildings in the top photo. Paslow, the old market and the old Melhado building, which is the one on the southern approach on the west side. SJC at one time had their extention department there. On a closer look, Romacs burnt down and has now been replaced by Downtown Plaza. Where Water lane and Regent Street converge is the old Triangle Building and you can still see the old market stalls that once occupied the shoreline behind the courthouse.

The aerial picture of downtown would have to be pre-commercial center because the old Fish Market can still be seen.

Renan Bernard: Henry Melhado was to Belize what Rockefellar was to the US... The man had serious paper. The Melhado Parade in Belmopan was to honor the great man indeed.

Nick Pollard: Melhado owned huge parcels of land...actually semi-donated Belmopan lands to George Price's government. He also had a brother Barney.
