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 Lovely Home--Gone

Apologies for this sun-spotted photo, but it is my best photo for this large fine-looking house that I assumed would not be torn down.  There were signs of a possible demolition, but I assumed the protective fencing for the trees must be for the construction of a laneway house or maybe for a renovation.  However, I was wrong: this house at 4028 West 34th Avenue was torn down in early April 2013.
