At last month’s GHG meeting, I gave a presentation of the Grandview years of James Guinet, who built more than 50 houses in our neighbourhood between 1907 and 1912.
This is an accessible version of that presentation: Guinet_web_Presentation
I will work on remembering how to put up a self-running version!
We had another interesting meeting last night, with even more newcomers filling out the room. It was great to see them.
After introductions, Penny reported on the response to the 2014 Centenary Houses project. She and Maria delivered 35 letters of proposal about two weeks ago, and we have already heard back positively from about 13 or 14.
Jak then gave an illustrated lecture on James Guinet and his contribution to the development of Grandview, 1907-1912.
Eric mentioned the avalability of a BC Mills House for study in Burnaby. He also mentiond the history of the Terminal Iron Works, an original Grandview foundry that oprated at the beginning of the twentieth-century.
Thanks to everone who came along!
