Vancouver History: Before and After – Apartments 2by
I am currently traveling to Switzerland on a media trip although I’ve come to a halt at Heathrow in London. My first flight to Geneva has been canceled due to weather (or as the pilot said “wind so fast it’s bound to turn your umbrella inside out.”)
As such, I thought it would be a good time to prepare a blog post since I’m currently 9 hours ahead of Vancouver and likely to pass out upon arrival in my Swiss hotel. I’m not sure when I’ll wake up or what day it might be but please enjoy this next installment of the “Then and Now” photo series.
Davie at Thurlow
10th at Hemlock
Tudor Manor, 1311 Beach Avenue
Cambie at West 23rd

This is my second “apartment” theme but if you have any suggestions for a future “Then and Now” series please feel free to drop me a comment.

I have a photo from the early 1920’s of my grandfather, who was then City Engineer for the City of Point Grey, before amalgamation. He is standing proudly beside one of his new lamp standards. No one in the family knows where the photo was taken, except that it’s somewhere on the west side. I would love to figure out where it is … although I bet all the houses in the shot are now gone.
I remember driving past the Tudor Manor with my partents when I was very young, admiring it and thinking I would love to live there one day!
ps: Glad to hear that you have arrived safely in Switzerland
