Georgia Medical-Dental Building in Vancouver

Georgia Medical-Dental Building and Cathedral Place - Some Vancouver history about these two buildings, from different generations, on West Georgia Street.

This is 1055 Burrard Street, 1956. On the right-hand side, you can see St. Andrews-Wesley United Church. Apparently this establishment was the Comox Dairy Lunch. Rumour has it they sold 7-Up as well as milk. (Photo via City of Vancouver Archives,  Bu P513.1)

"We honoured Joe Fortes with a fountain in Alexandra Park, but how much more awesome would it have been, if we’d kept his house? Not only would it have been one of the oldest structures in Vancouver, it could have made both a great little museum for black history in Vancouver and for the houses that once dotted the water side of Beach Avenue. Instead it went up in flames in 1928." - Eve Lazarus | Joe Fortes Beach Avenue Cottage, CVA BuP111
