An update from James Johnstone:
This past Monday I made a presentation at the City of Vancouver Archives, a virtual walking tour of the old West End, using 260 of the City of Vancouver Archives and Vancouver Public Library’s archival images. 45 people attended and as a result of that show I have been asked to re-present the talk sometime in August for the West End Neighbours group. Time and place TBA.
As a follow up to the presentation, I will be debuting my West End Neighbourhood History Walking Tour this Saturday, July 24th at 10 am and 2 pm. I will be using quite a few (but not all 260) images I used at my presentation during the tour.
It costs $20 per person for about a 2 – 2.5 hour tour.
The starting point for both tours this Saturday is from in front of O’Doul’s (SW corner of Robson and Jervis) and the tours end up at The Sylvia Hotel on English Bay.
