This is where the Cleveland Dam is today.
Looking at English Bay and Beach Avenue on a pier that is no longer there. Building is though so I will have to do some walking and research.
I hope you enjoyed this small glimpse into Vancouver in the past. Instead of having to imagine what it looked like, you can see it.
After all that black and white, I need some colour. Last week I wandered around and got some great nature photos.
Other notable features of this structure are the steeply pitched roof, the saddle-bag dormers, deep overhangs, scroll cut knee brackets, cedar shingle exterior cladding and the front porch supported by capped pillars. Other aspects to take note of are the various forms of fenestration, including square bay windows with stained glass and stained glass window on the staircase landing.
I hope you find the beauty around you.
