Description

This highly ornamented 1889 Queen Anne style house is one of the oldest survivors from early Vancouver. It is typical of the type of house that was commonly built just after the Great Fire as the city began to develop and expand. Projecting bays, twisted rope columns and gable screens show the kind of wooden ornamentation that Victorian builders were so fond of. Allan Diamond Architect received a City of Vancouver Heritage Award in 1992 for the restoration of 451 East Pender Street.
