RAVINES, CREEKS AND CAMPING?
6TH APRIL 2011
In 1885 Lachlan Hamilton made his way up the slope from False Creek to a spot next to a small ravine and creek where he set up a camp. Hamilton had chosen a spot pretty much at today’s 10th and Granville. And this is where he set to surveying the slope above False Creek in preparation for the Canadian Pacific Railway’s first major subdivision of land on the south shore of the creek.
