Public Art in Vancouver

Vancouver is a coastal city located in British Colombia, Canada. It was named after British Captain George Vancouver, who explored and first mapped the area in the 1790s. Vancouver is located in the traditional territories of the Squamish , Musqueam and Burrard peoples. Hastings Mill a logging sawmill, established in 1867, paved the way for a townsite, which expanded rapidly following the the arrival of the Canadian Pacific Railway (CPR) in the 1880s. It was also helped along by a makeshift tavern established by "Gassy" Jack Deighton in 1867 on the edge of the mill property. In 1886 the Great Vancouver Fire burned the entire city to the ground but was quickly rebuilt.
