Vancouver Block

Vancouver Block is a building on Granville st. I’m going to pretend like I know something about the architectural history in Vancouver but we all know that would be a big fat lie. Google is a big reason why one might sound knowledgable sitting behind a screen. It was built by a company run by a brit named John Parr who built lots of things in this beautiful city. It is designated as a heritage building by the City of Vancouver and must have been one of the tallest in the city when built back in 1912. Maybe not the oldest or the most spectacular building around the world but it does stand out in this young city, if you lift your head up that is. I guess happy 100th birthday, whenever that day happens to be.
