A Discovery of Early 20th C. Vintage Photographs at truth and beauty gallery, Vancouver

Tuesday, June 2nd, 2015

In June, Vancouver’s truth and beauty gallery presents A Discovery of  Early 20th C. Vintage Photographs, featuring among others, the image above ‘Among Big Trees’ – Seven Sisters, Stanley Park shown here courtesy of truth and beauty whose owner, Peppa Martin, an AWAD Member, describes how this exhibit came about.

A guy walked into the gallery one day carrying a worn cardboard box he found in the closet of a heritage apartment building he’s renovating. It’s full of dozens of vintage photos that he’s taking to the dump unless, he shrugs, I want them?

“Sure”, I say, “what’ve you got? ” Plopping the box onto my desk in a cloud of dust, he tells me to keep what I want and toss the rest. Taking a cursory glance, my heart leaps. ‘Yes, thanks, I’ll hang onto them”.

As it happened, the box of prints lay hidden in the dark for eighty-odd years inside a closet at the Wenonah Apartments, a Class B heritage building on Main Street & 11th Avenue in Vancouver’s storied Mount Pleasant neighbourhood. The building is named for Wenonah, the daughter of Tecumseh, a Shawnee Chief who allied his tribe with the British and Canadians in the War of 1812. Built in 1912, it was designed by the prolific architect William P. White, also responsible for the famed Sylvia Court Apartments, now the Sylvia Hotel.
