Happy 125th Birthday, Vancouver
Happy 125th Birthday, Vancouver.
I often talk about my Black and White Time Machine. It has the power to transport me to points in time in my family history and helps to remind me about the rich history that still lives in the City of Vancouver.
Being a third generation Vancouverite is a point of pride for me. I had the benefit of absorbing oral history handed down to me from the maternal side of my family.
