The Rice Block

view location

There are very few old photos of Vancouver this far east. This one from 1965 shows the 800 block of East Hastings Street, including the Rice Block on the corner, which was built in 1912 at the height of Vancouver's building boom of the early 20th century. It has been restored and is owned by BC Housing, providing 42 units of affordable homes.
