The Arcade

CVA 371-2098 - [Looking north on Cambie Street towards the Court House], ca1900.

CVA 371-2098 – [Looking north on Cambie Street towards the Court House], ca1900.

Both of these images are looking roughly in the same direction (although the 2014 photo was taken a block further north from Hastings than was the ca1900 one). At the time the ca1900 image was made, the Dominion Trust Building (the tall, orange one shown below, constructed 1908-10) was a decade from completion, the Arcade (1894-95) was on the lot where the Dominion would ultimately be, and the ‘first’ Vancouver courthouse (1888) was where Victory Square (1924) is today.
