  • The Perfect Mix for an Iconic Photo

    The Perfect Mix for an Iconic Photo

    Vancouver, Downtown - East Side

    The Vancouver downtown east side has quite a story and history. It is one of the oldest neighborhoods in Vancouver, B.C. At the turn of the 20th century, this was the heart of Vancouver (Hastings st. & Main St.) Everything was there, the main library, the banks, City hall, fantastic shopping and even the Wood wards Department Store. The great photographer Fred Herktzog focussed much of his time to this area.
