As much as I love the diversity of neighbourhoods in Vancouver, from the quiet oak-lined streets of the West Side to the community parks of Strathcona and the sloped views of Sunset, the West End downtown has been my home for nearly seven years now. I love that I can walk in a block or two from a major downtown street and hear birds chirping and lawn mowers trimming. Today’s round-up of photos from the Vancouver Public Library‘s archives features the grand old houses of the West End, some of which are still around today.
