Vancouver's history and architecture in a fascinating set of self-guided walking tours. Vancouver is best appreciated on foot, whether it's the old commercial blocks of the inner city, the centuryold cottages of Strathcona or the mansions of Shaughnessy and West Vancouver's Caulfield. A few of the walks are only a block or two long while others range over entire neighborhoods, but even the longest can be walked comfortably in a few hours on a sunny afternoon. All include maps or clear directions in a text rich with historical anecdote and short on architectural bafflegab! Now revised and updated to reflect recent changes or losses to some of the buildings and houses on Vancouver's changing architecural landscape. Also incorporated is information offered from careful readers, who share an understandable fascination with old Vancouver.
