Kitsilano Indian Reserve Beach

1936 CVA 260-617 - #1FBFBEC

CVA 260-617 – Shacks and boats on Kitsilano Point beside the Burrard Bridge – James Crookall, photo, 1936.

This image was made shortly after completion of the Burrard Bridge, to the east in background. The bridge behind Burrard Bridge is most likely the former railway trestle bridge crossing false creek (now gone). Behind the trestle is the Granville Bridge (the one previous to the current bridge).

The beach was referred to in some quarters as the Kitsilano Indian Reserve Beach (for obvious reasons; Seaforth Armoury at the south end of the Burrard Bridge was also built on the Kitsilano Reserve). Today it is known simply as Kits Beach or Vanier Park.
