First and foremost, I love that it is not a standard Vancouver view.
This is not an intersection that was often photographed and, when it was, it was never dare I be so categorical? What do I mean?
I love that this image was made just prior to the construction of the new and current Granville Street Bridge. In my opinion, we seriously overbuilt that bridge. And the bridge had an impact and continues to do so on the look and feel of downtown. One of the subtle but very nice aspects of this photo is that Howe Street is still a two-way street in After the new bridge was up, it would become a one-way northbound thoroughfare.

I think that affected this corner in a negative way. Maybe it was the aroma of the space. Probably it had something to do with it being an independently owned book shop. But I have never forgotten being in that shop. You and I have been inside countless big box outlets over the years. But how many of those browsing experiences do you remember, specifically?
Today, there is a big box sportswear retailer on the corner.

How many times a year are you tempted to enter a sport shop? A very early if not the first Vancouver water fountain was situated at the corner which, from the s, was known as Pioneer Place but is better known, today, as Pigeon Park. Browning] by the trustees of the Vancouver townsite to offer to the city, free of charge, that triangular piece of ground at the intersection of Hastings and Carrall Streets, measuring 17 ft. There is no sign of a drinking fountain on the corner at this time. In , it was reported in the local press that a few new drinking fountains constructed of concrete and faced with portland cement would be installed in the city that year Province , 17 June :.
By , ten other quaffing sites had been chosen by the city. To the best of my knowledge, there are no drinking fountains today at any of these locations:. There were two sorts of drinking fountains which were popular in Vancouver over a large chunk of our history. If you grew up in the s or later, you are likely accustomed to water fountains that conform to a pretty standard form: a unit with a device on it which you press or twist that sends water out the top from which you slurp to take in a mouthful or, perhaps more typically, less than a mouthful! Here is my favourite photo of it:.

What are the two young gals drinking from? Well you may ask! They were tin cups that were attached to the memorial with metal chains. Yes, community cups, quite literally! I can hear your 21st century, germ-sensitive self reacting to this. I know. Me, too.
Water flowed from the mouth of the lion figure and into the basin over which the girls were drinking. CVA Mon P The girl on far right has hold of one of the metal chains that held one of the bronze cups once upon a time. It was long gone, by the time this image was taken. The Maple Tree : This final example of a memorial fountain commemorated not a deceased person but a former tree and the memories associated with it by Vancouver pioneers. The Maple Tree monument and Drinking Fountain, Charles Marega the gent nearest to the fountain monument was its creator.
Where the diagonal pedestrian traffic way through Victory Square divides across Cambie Street from the Province office, is a bubbling drinking fountain much used by birds and dogs and humans.
The sparrows have a rather hard time of it when thirst drives them to the fountain, for they must perch precariously on the edge of the cement basin and take their drink a drop at a time. The pigeons having more bulk, do better. Some of the dogs show considerable ingenuity at the fountain. One little black spaniel comes quite frequently, always approaches joyously with a run and a jump that lands him square on top of the basin and there he sits and laps and laps.
Other little dogs look longingly and pass by. Some have to be held up to the water spout by their owners. The larger dogs stand up much like people, and yesterday a big old fellow embraced the whole fountain with his forepaws while he quenched his thirst for a good five minutes, pausing now and then to take in the scenery. The humans seem seldom to come by when the birds or dogs are at the fountain. It may be all right at that.
It merely occurred to me that the park board and the medical health officer might like to know what is going on, and might be persuaded to place a bird bath and dog trough at the foot of the fountain. A human looks on. The public health issues associated with memorial fountains was solved by their other disadvantage: cups were stolen almost as soon as the memorials were erected! But what about bubblers? Reason 1: Anti-Alcohol Movement. There were those who maintained that if fountains were readily available, they would serve to discourage folks from entering saloons Daily World , 2 Oct Reason 2: City cheapness.
It may have been that this option was more expensive, however. And from what I saw in press reports, the city seemed to always been on the lookout for cheaper models of bubblers, over the years. Reason 3: Willful ignorance. A New Westminster physician by the name of Dr. Hall was quoted in the Province as early as , remarking on a connection between tuberculosis and public fountains:.
The greatest need. Some of the very worst centres of infection are the public drinking fountains.
Not only tuberculosis, but all manner of diseases are spread from these. If a man wants a drink when he is out, let him go to a saloon — they will give him a drink of water for nothing; but avoid the drinking fountain. Well, Dr. What is monetary cost when compared with threats to public health? Also the Joe Fortes memorial was originally, in part, a drinking fountain. Province , 25 June The final memorial fountain that I could find being erected in the city was one that was in dedicated to the memory of Mrs.
Sally Birmingham and Mrs. Agnes Lutes. Grand Union Hotel, When it occurred to me, recently, to research the history of the still-standing Grand Union Hotel on unit block West Hastings , it seemed to me that it should be a fairly straightforward task.
How mistaken I was. The hotel at this address had 32 rooms, a small bar room and a parlour with a piano in it. The Oxford was sold sometime in Spring In June, the former Oxford Hotel was gutted and the furnishings sold at auction. Daily World 31 May The building in which the first Grand Union Hotel would be located as of , had been constructed in amid some controversy brought on by multiple accidents on the construction site:.

A persistent hoodoo seems to follow the new Braid-Robertson-Godson block. The fourth of a series of accidents occurred there at noon today. The accident was occasioned by the fall of the elevator which is used to hoist building material to the top of the building. There were seven men on the lift at the time. They were just coming down for lunch. The descent of the hoist is controlled by a friction brake, which did not seem to hold at first, and when within about thirty feet of the floor, the engineer put it on a little harder to check the rapid fall.
