Built in 1912 at the edge of Chinatown, the Stratford Hotel has seen better days. It was built during an economic boom
in Vancouver, but over the years, the centre of town drifted over to the north west, and the building languished, surviving several fires
and miscellaneous shenanigans. These days it is called the Fan Tower, a low income housing facility, with a trendy oyster ba
r on the ground floor.
