city haunts

Surreptitiously wandering the aging corridors of municipal power one summer afternoon, the art deco halls were hauntingly silent while I stole a few ghostly images of the original fixtures and detailing still in use from so long ago...

[there was a wall of framed photographs of all the previous mayors of Vancouver - needless to say, they were all male, all white, some with bushy beards...]

Vancouver City Hall, operating since 1936,
designed by the architectural firm of Townley and Matheson,
Captain George Vancouver guiding on...
