In the Gallery: Boardwalks & Byways
November 7, 2023–January 12, 2024
Like many coastal communities, West Vancouver’s shoreline is dotted with piers that continue to stand the test of time. Once the destination of a bustling ferry service, these wooden jetties connected Vancouver’s southern shore to Ambleside, Hollyburn, Dundarave, Caulfeild, and Snug Cove. These points of entry at the bottom of 14th, 17th, and 25th streets allowed commerce to flourish and dreams to take shape. As this growth accelerated, West Vancouver eventually separated from North Vancouver in 1912. Both municipalities worked together to improve Keith Road and build Marine Drive.
This exhibition showcases photographs of waterfront landmarks and thoroughfares from 1900 to 1920 that still exist today. Although the community has evolved significantly, the well-known adage, “the more things change, the more they stay the same,” rings true as roads created 100 years ago continue to be utilized and appreciated by residents.
