1901 Georgia Street; detail from Goad’s Atlas of Vancouver, Volume 1, Plate 42 [Denman Street to Burrard Inlet to Chilco Street to Georgia Street]; Vancouver City Archives; 1972-582.17; https://searcharchives.vancouver.ca/plate-42-denman-street-to-burrard-inlet-to-chilco-street-to-georgia-street.

 

I updated the page on 1901 Georgia Street, which was on the north side of Georgia Street, west of the intersection with Gilford Street.

I added illustrations and information on later uses of the property.

I added a new page on Vancouver Ship Yard Limited, which was a builder of ships and boats. It was in the 1800 block of Georgia Street from 1902 until the 1960s. In its earliest years, the street address was 1877 Georgia Street.
