Grandview Database v. 26

We have today uploaded a new and updated version of the Grandview Database.  

This version incorporates more than 2,600 new and amended data points since the previous release

  • More than 1,300 additional entries have been added from the 1917 and 1918 City Directories;  1917 Directory entries are now complete;;
  • more than 1,250 additional entries have been compiled from the 1921 census; this too is now complete;
  • and about 70 early water permits have been added thanks to the indefatigable Neviile.

In August Directory entries from 1918 onward will continue to be added, along with miscellaneous event data from the “Vancouver Daily World“. 1917-1924.

Now that the 1921 census data entry has been completed, analysis of certain overall characteristics of Grandview in 1921 can begin to be ascertained — population densities, household sizes, the location, distribution and cost of residential rental space, for example.  Over the next few months we hope to bring some of this work into the public forum.

We hope you find the Database of value, and we encourage and welcome corrections, and additions which should be sent to jakking@shaw.ca.
