It's hard to believe that this is the same house, but it is. I checked. All of the trimmings have been lost to time, and at some point the house was raised and covered in asphalt shingles. It is also one of the oldest remaining houses in Vancouver, the 10th house to be hooked up to Vancouver's water supply in 1889, when it was built. Surprisingly, it is not on Vancouver's heritage register, and is now surrounded by commercial buildings, so who knows how long it will last.
