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.

Holidays in Dunbar


The door with 4028 no longer leads to anything, and there's no need to decorate for Christmas. The 1938 house (same year as mine) situated on a 33 foot lot was sold in May 2011, had survey markers sunk in July, and was torn down December 8, 2011. Do you remember what it looked like?
