Vancouver’s West End is filled with beautiful old buildings, like the Queen Charlotte at 1101 Nicola.

Thanks to the Vancouver Archives for original photos taken in 1928 by Major Matthews.

The Queen Charlotte Apartments building was built in 1927 by the Dominion Construction Company (thanks to Memory BC). It was renovated in 1979 by Robert Ledingham and now contains 25 strata condos. A Heritage House Tour in 2015 brought the Courier’s Naoibh O’Connor and photog Dan Toulgoet to the Queen Charlotte.  The quotes from occasional PT contributor Michael Kluckner are well worth finding in the Courier article.
