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.

The Candy Cane House

In early January 2011, this candy cane was still celebrating Christmas, but there were signs that the house, built in 1945, would be torn down.
 Early February--is that a flowering witch hazel?
By February 23, the house was gone, but the candy cane still stands!

The new house was completed in 2012, and it is currently for sale in June 2013. Perhaps if the candy cane was included it would sell...
