Coton's Grocery, (originally named Round the Corner),
was a small neighbourhood grocery store operated
by Mr. & Mrs. Leonard Coton and their three
daughters Eileen, Pat, & Marjorie.
Marjorie's daughter, Mary, (who commissioned this painting),
remembers working in the store as well.
Although the building is currently used as a
private residence, it is on record as
"the best preserved storefront in Esquimalt".
