South Granville: Apartments, Commerce and Shaughnessy.

Even though my next Continuing Studies course for UBC hasn’t started yet, the April course has now been set. Here’s the course calendar description.

“Once just a trail cut through through the thick forest, today South Granville is a thriving commercial street surrounded by three distinct neighbourhoods. Part of the massive Canadian Pacific Railway land grant given to the company in the 1880s, in this class we’ll explore the origins of this community and the forces that shaped it, from streetcar lines to the real estate operations of the railway and the role of the False Creek sawmills.”

As usual it will be one classroom lecture and 4 walking tours.
