Coffee and Pastries at Starbucks across the street from the Laughing Men Statues at the SE Corner of Davie and Denman. We will pay for your choice of a coffee or late and a pastry. Come early and socialize with the group prior to the WALK. Note there is a bathroom in the Starbucks coffee shop.

Noted author and city historian John Atkin will lead us on a walking tour of the WEST END of Vancouver.
The West end is a neighborhood of contrasts. Large early homes still grace some of the neighborhood’s streets along with many excellent examples of early apartment buildings. Mid-century modern buildings, from three story walk ups to tall concrete towers signal the zoning and social changes started in the 1950s.
We will explore the West End east of Denman on this walk and look at the neighborhood’s evolution.

No host luncheon will follow at a restaurant in the WEST END.
