What Lakewood Drive Might Have Been

Lakewood Drive is a thoroughly lovely residential street today. But that is not how some residents wanted it to be.

“A petition signed by a large number of property-owners on Lakewood Drive is being presented to the B.C.E.R. [the streetcar company] for a carline on that thoroughfare, to parallel the Park [Commercial] Drive line and relieve much of the present heavy traffic. Lakewood Drive is a through street, is equi-distant between Park Drive and Nanaimo Street, and is admirably suited to become a business street according to the petitioners.”

This from the Vancouver Daily World on 11th April, 1911, page 16.
