The Victoria Daily Colonist reported that Isador Braverman came to Victoria in 1858. He established what became a very profitable wholesale and retail tobacco business.
In 1862, Isador tried his luck at the mines, but was unsuccessful. He returned to Victoria and resumed his thriving business. In addition, he made some lucky real estate investments which afforded him great wealth.
Isador retired in the 1890’s but stayed active in civic affairs. He was one of the first to donate to the Royal French Hospital was established. He was also a prominent director, when the hospital was absorbed by the Royal Jubilee hospital he remained interested in hospital affairs until his death.
