Vancouver Streets

The Vancouver street indexes are derived from information in the directories for the Powell street area and compiled to trace owner and resident changes from 1930 to 1949. Each address is linked to title and lot information where available. Names of individuals and organizations are also encoded for cross-referencing with the rest of the collections and data-sets.

Readers of these historical materials will encounter derogatory references to Japanese Canadians and euphemisms used to obscure the intent and impacts of the internment and dispossession. While these are important realities of the history, the Landscapes of Injustice Research Collective urges users to carefully consider their own terminological choices in writing and speaking about this topic today as we confront past injustice.
