Walking Tour – From Cedar Cove To Port Town

June 22, 2019
10 AM – 12 PM

Via the Vancouver Heritage Foundation:

Less than a century ago, the area around the foot of Victoria Street was a humming hive of industrial activity, working class homes and breweries. Now it’s a bustling borough of hip restaurants, old structures and vacant lots ripe for gentrification, and more breweries than ever. Explore these streets for signs of what once was the Port of East Vancouver and see how some patterns have evolved and survived.
