Pretty Pots Florist was at one time Union Bank of Canada becoming a branch of Royal Bank. This frame building was renovated and became the headquarters of the Union Bank in 1918. In 1926, Union Bank became the Royal Bank. The Royal Bank stayed there in the 1960s, then moved to another location further south on Stittsville Main Street. The old bank safe is now used by the Pretty pots flower shop like its flower storage area. The photo below shows the original building when it was the Union Bank of Canada. The photo was taken around 1918-20. Note that the Main Street in Stittsville was made of dirt and the sidewalk was made of planks of wood.
