Anyway most of the data file for it is on my other PC and it will take a while to access it, but I did find this great article from when the hotel opened. It is from the Saturday, June 28, 1913 Vancouver World Newspaper.
One of the things I love about Blogspot is that when you click on uploaded images you can enlarge them quite a bit.
I get a kick out of the language used promoting the article; it's pure hyperbole! A lobby that is "as clean as the conscience of a child"--Wow! Can you imagine The Shangrila or one of the other newer hotels promoting themselves this way. This post is mostly for its entertainment value. enjoy.
