Description

Excerpt from Addresses Delivered Before the Canadian Club of Vancouver, 1906-1908 My first visit to this portion of the Pacific Coast was about twenty-five years ago. At that time a few dollars would have purchased the site of your entire city. The baptismal ceremony which bestowed upon your city the historic and distinguished name of Vancouver had not vet taken place. When I was last in this part of the world, your now famous Vancouver was known to comparatively few as Gastown, thus irreverently named after that inspired booster, Gassy Jack, to whom the future greatness of Vancouver appears to have been revealed.
