Venables and Victoria

While researching the previous post, I came across this image of the Methodist Church at Venables and Victoria.

The quality of the image is not great (old newspaper + microfilm + online) but I am sure this is the earliest image of the church as it was taken before the dedication ceremony in March 1909, and was published in Vancouver World 1909 Mar 6, p.13.

This is, of course, now the Vancouver East Cultural Centre.

One thought on “Venables and Victoria

  1. Wonderful work Jak

    Your thorough research is evident in the quality of the post.
    It’s amazing to think that there was a church at Commercial (Park) Drive and Adanac Street so long ago.

    A picture would’ve been amazing!

    Thanks
