view location

A battalion of Canadian troops march down Pender Street on their way to World War I.  The Palmer (later called the Pender Hotel), built in 1913, is still operating under the name Skwachays Lodge, although only the facade remains from the original building. Further down the block, the Arco Hotel can be seen.  (1915 Stuart Thompson photograph from the Vancouver City Archives).
