Essondale nursery 1914

A William John Moore photograph of the Essondale tree nursery (full size) recently put on-line by the Vancouver Archives. Very interesting photograph. The fence line is today's Holly Drive, which at that time was Pitt River Road. Looking uphill in the center of the photograph today, one would see the view blocked by the Henry Esson Young building. and the Administration building on the right hand side. This photograph also appears to have a portion of John Davidson's Botanical garden on the right hand side.

The recently completed WestLawn building is in the far left distance.
