Description Hand-tinted photograph of the Grand View Villa Hotel. This hotel was built by Dr. R.G. Brett with the monetary help of the Canadian Pacific Railway Company. Dr Brett was the company doctor on the railway construction line. The Grand View Villa Hotel was built near the hot springs in 1886 and rebuilt in 1901 after it was destroyed by a fire. A second fire levelled the Grand View in 1931 paving the way for the government to acquire the lease and build the current Upper Hot Springs Bathhouse.
