1893 Beach Avenue

1897 Beach Avenue and 1893 Beach Avenue; detail from The Pier, English Bay, Vancouver, B.C.; 1909; https://open.library.ubc.ca/collections/langmann/items/1.0371414#p0z2r0f:pier.

 

I updated the page on 1893 Beach Avenue, which was a small one-storey building on the north side of Beach Avenue, just east of Gilford Street.

I added illustrations, information on the residents, and references to Sylvia Court (later called the Sylvia Hotel), which has occupied the site since 1913.
