Four Storey and ...
I was out walking and looking for photos to take when I happened upon this. This building at 901-911 Homer Street was built around 1910 and the four storey brick building is typical of commercial buildings constructed around this time.
I have to say that I like the idea of renovating existing buildings and incorporating them into needed, newer structures. That way we can retain our history, make use of existing structures and still progress as a city.
For the next building we are jumping ahead almost forty years. The Vancouver Community College or Vancouver Vocational Institute was built from 1948 to 1950.
Sharp Thompson Berwick and Pratt.
I hope you find the beauty around you.
