In the old photo taken sometime in the 1950s), the Richmond Apartments
are on the left, the Devonshire Hotel
is in the background. Both are gone now. The old court house remains as does the Hotel Vancouver, a sliver of which can be seen in both photos. Hornby Street appears to be much wider now, possibly due to the construction of Robson Square
across the street, along with the addition of a bike lane a couple of years ago. (Photo by Leslie Sheraton, copyright City of Vancouver).
