The Lawman (and woman)
Today I ventured out into the pouring rain even though my view of this city's landmarks was clouded by the mist. I walked in the downpour to get my readers something to peruse. I put on restrictive runner shoes, a heavy rain coat, a hat and braved the elements. Just for my loyal readers. See how obstructed the Top of Vancouver Revolving tower is?
I walked down to the Vancouver Police Museum. As I mentioned in a blog post on August 9 of this year, the museum is located in the old coronor's court on Cordova Street.
Once you have turned right go into the gift shop and pay an admission fee then you can really see the history.
On June 17, 1912 the Vancovuer Police Force made history by becoming the first police force in Canada to hire women.
As I was leaving the museum I saw a very impressive wall.
This was a great experience and one I am glad I went on. I would love to go back and take more photos of things I missed as well as perhaps get a couple of items from the gift shop. For the seven dollars it cost me it was well worth it.
I hope you find the beauty around you.
