Description

Brick, Stone, Terra Cotta and a Dragon or Two: Downtown Architecture Tour


Join civic historian, author and heritage consultant John Atkin as he guides walking tours focused on examining the crafted environment in the city and the craftspeople who created them. John has explored Vancouver like few others have and offers an interesting and offbeat insight to the city's architecture, history and neighbourhoods through his walking tours, books, and blog. johnatkin.com.


Explore the skill and craft that went into the architecture of some of the city's heritage buildings. From brick to stone and terra cotta, you’ll look at some of the materials used and along the way find a hidden war memorial, fossils embedded in limestone and a menagerie of beasts hiding in plain sight, including serpents curled up under balconies. And lots of lions too.

Full details to follow upon successful registration.
