Grandview in 1945

Here is a map prepared by the City of Vancouver that shows almost all of Grandview in 1945.

grandview 1945This image is constructed from two maps (343.10 and 343.11) in the City of Vancouver Archives collection.  The series of maps is captioned as being “hand coloured to show tax sale property for sale, property with no water, street widening and drainage, replotting, reserved land for schools, reserved land for parks, sundry land, capital assets not including schools and parks, schools, and parks, as applicable.”  It is not clear what colours are meant to represent what item but, from other data I have collected, I would suggest that the houses marked in red were those in tax trouble.

If you zoom in on your screen you can see a great deal of detail.
