Edmonton Auto Spring Works was founded in 1914, when Henry McCoy established the business out of a blacksmith shop.

By the early 1920s, the company had moved to the building that is now destroyed.

The business was part of a trend in Edmonton after the First World War, when automobile sales and service companies sprang up and displaced livery stables, according to information on a City of Edmonton website.

The building also illustrated a trend in architecture that blended earlier styles of commercial building with the Moderne Style for a more streamlined and industrial look, said a publication called Historical Walking Tours of Downtown Edmonton, located on the city website.
