Noted Resort

Screen Shot 2014-01-05 at 10.53.56 AMThe July 17th., 1883 issue of the Mainland Guardian reported that the town of Granville (Vancouver in three years) was becoming a noted resort for “pleasure seekers” since it “seems that no longer is the delightful and invigorating summer breeze which constantly blows o’er the dark waters of Coal Harbour on sunny afternoons, impregnated by coming in contact with the Burrard Inlet Fishing Co’s manure heap. If there is anything noticeable in the air we have heard no complaints of late, or perhaps the wind takes a circuitous route in coming from the southwest.”
