In 1900, when this home was built, this was the heart of Vancouver's first prestigious neighbourhood, nicknamed Bluebood Alley.
This home is at 1050 Nicola. It was built around 1909 and is a prime example of the Edwardian style of homes that were built in Vancouver around that time.
Some of the notable features of this home are the decorative scalloped shingles in the upper portion of the front gable, fluted porch columns, front gable roof along with various forms of fenestration (retaining their original wood frames and with stained glass elements) including a two-storey bay window, and a bay window off the front porch, and dormer window.
(That should say rhytmn of the tides)
I have to admit that today was an interesting day. I took some photos of some beautiful heritage homes but unfortunately the photo of the information plaque was too blurry to read so I will have to go back and get another photo.
But as I was leaving Pacific Street, where the homes were, I decided to head towards Beach Avenue because something caught my attention.
Isn't it interesting? And aren't you glad I took a detour?
I hope you find the beauty around you.
