Next Saturday, 29th March at 10am, historian and GHG’s own Maurice Guibord will be conducting a walking tour concerning the history and heritage of the area between Commercial Drive and Clark Drive.
This is a walk arranged by the Vancouver Heritage Foundation who describe it in the following way:
“This fascinating sub-area has been little explored, straddling industrial, commercial and residential precincts and displaying the transitions that continue to transform its built heritage. You will see how artists have played an important part in making the area more livable, how demographic pressures have transformed the residential landscape, and how some individuals chose this area to make their statement, be it cultural, patrimonial or other.”
Registration can be done online: http://www.vancouverheritagefoundation.org/take-a-tour/walking-tours/ or by calling their office: 604 264 9642. There is a cost of $15 for VHF tours.
Maurice is an erudite and entertaining tour leader and this is thoroughly recommended.
