Biographical history

C.B. Hume and Co. Ltd. was formed in 1902 to carry on the business of C.B. Hume Department Store. The store opened in 1892 but was not incorporated as a company until 1902, when the business built a substantial brick department store building at the corner of Mackenzie Avenue and First Street in Revelstoke, B.C. It operated at this location until circa 1936 when the business failed. C.B. Hume was the sole manager of the store during its existence. The company also owned an 80 acre ranch at Williamsons Lake in Revelstoke where they grew produce for the store. C.B. Hume died in May of 1937.
