The view above is an atypical one. In the distance, of course, is the (unfinished?) Vancouver Block. The church in the middle distance/right is Wesley Methodist Church which in the 1930s would be demolished to make way for the Burrard Building (see image below). Wesley Methodist and St. Andrew’s Presbyterian (Georgia at Richards) churches would join to form St Andrew’s-Wesley United Church in the 1930s (SW corner Burrard & Nelson). The dominance of residential buildings along Georgia Street in the first decade of the 20th century is striking. As is the prevalence of horse-driven vehicles along the wide street.
