Vancouver History: 1915-1930 Style

Art Deco Chic, the latest exhibit from the Museum of Vancouver, opens March 7, 2012 and I am currently doing a ticket giveaway for opening night.

Victoria's Big Snow Of 1916 • British Columbia Magazine

A hundred years ago, Victoria residents saw the worst snowfall to ever hit the city. And for a city that isn’t used to receiving harsh temperatures and snowfall, it was a serious blow indeed. At the beginning of February 1916, the city fell victim to a total of 46.4 inches of snow. Feb. 1, a Tuesday, saw 10 inches of snow. Wednesday, Feb. 2, another 21 inches of snow was recorded. This was the worst single day in history, and this […]

The Vancouver Archives is full of gems, giving us a look at what Vancouver was like centuries ago. But what if we wanted to know what an exact location today looked like 100 years ago? That’s what Vancouver’s Andrew Farris set out to achieve. After getting the idea for a Then and Now photo series when he travelled to Nagasaki, Japan and realized the series made experiencing the history of the atomic bombing much more real, Farris wanted to capture more cities and show the change from then to…

Land Rights and Environmentalism in British Columbia

The website firstnations.eu documents in pictures with commentary the environmental havoc caused by European settler society to the pre colonial world of what is now known as British Columbia (BC). It argues that the road back to environmental sanity must go through the restitution of past wrongs to First Nations by means of strong support for their land rights over and against the continuing rapacious and short sighted destruction of primaeval forests, ancient trees, wild salmon runs…

Vancouver Tourist Tips from 1925

If you only had one day, three days, or a week to spend in Vancouver what would you see and do? On the back of an American tourist map from 1925, one of those ephemeral artifacts I have handy in my family's personal local archives, I found a suggested itinerary for a time when our city was barely 40 years old. 90 years after this map's publication, I'd say most of these suggestions are still spot on. Beaches, Stanley Park, scenic viewpoints, cultural hubs, Squamish, Capilano, Kitsilano, and…

The first, Boom Days in the Slocan, will feature excerpts from a manuscript written by JC Harris in 1944, never before published. JC arrived in the Slocan from Vancouver Island in 1896. The…

Riots & Hostage-Taking: British Columbia Penitentiary's Bloody History • British Columbia Magazine

A History Of Crime & Punishment The British Columbia Penitentiary, commonly referred to as the BC Pen, was a maximum-security prison in New Westminster, on a site overlooking the Fraser River. It opened in 1878, was home to prisoners serving sentences longer than two years, and was the first federal penitentiary to open west of Manitoba. The prison was officially closed on May 10, 1980.

Thanks to the City of Vancouver Archives and Chuck Davis' History of Metropolitan Vancouver, here's a glimpse at what happened in the month of November throughout Vancouver history: November 3, 1862 Three fellows named Morton, Brighouse and Hailstone filed a claim today for the land that is now Vancouver’s West End. They paid more than $1 an acre, which led scoffers in New Westminster—who thought the land was of little value—to call them “The Three Greenhorns'. November 8, 1927 A vaudeville…
