In past posts I have missed a few photos and information. Today I will try to fill some of those in.
From what I have read Rennie did a lot of work on this property. It had been empty since the 1970s and was in need of some tender loving care. Many people would have just torn the building down and built new but Rennie, thankfully, preserved this piece of Vancouver heritage.
Oh and the sign I showed you at the beginning? It was designed by Martin Creed from Britain. Some may think that displaying the slogan in an area of town that is so inflicted with those who are less fortunate may seem inappropriate but I don't think so. I feel if someone can look at those words and believe them then can start on the road to recovery.
Until next time, probably tomorrow, I hope you find the beauty around you.
