Murals and Victoria
Now I want to go back to the mural on Campbell and Hastings. Remember it?
I never finished everything on there.
407 and 417 Heatley received water service in 1893.
These homes were built before the street levelling, as was 1898 Heatley on the corner where there were rooms on the Hastings Street side that were buried.
Before this area was settled Campbell Avenue at high tide was a passage for First Nation's canoes through to the Burrard Inlet. The road led to the fish docks on the waterfront until they were closed in the 1980s. The avenue was named after George Campbell from the Hastings Sawmill.
I still have more to show you from that mural but I am running out of room again. I hope you find the beauty around you.
