The housing stock in the Dunbar area of Vancouver has undergone significant change in the past five years. Originally a working class neighbourhood with many quite modest homes surrounded by lovely gardens, it is now a neighbourhood that 99% of the people working in Vancouver cannot afford because the replacement homes are built to the maximum footprint and cost millions. Greenspace has been reduced. Included on this website are photos of many (not all) of the disappeared houses.

A May Demolition on King Edward

I'm sorry that I didn't get a photo of this cute house before it began to be torn down. It is of the same era as the one at 3820 West King Edward (torn down in June--see blog of June 27), but it has the addition of an enclosed front entry. On April 3, the house looked like this.

There was a lovely gate, but it is gone. There is still evidence of a beautiful and well cared for garden.

On May 4, more of the house is gone.
It was torn down prior to May 15.
