Photo: This Creek is False

Hard to believe that only a few decades ago, Vancouver's False Creek was dominated by industry. Not that it doesn't make sense, because it does - it's more because of the vast degree of separation between the mills and warehouses of the past and the condos of today. Historic photos I've seen of the False Creek waterfront remind me of the Toronto waterfront in bygone days - I suppose one major difference is that despite all the development in Toronto, a fair amount of that old industrial infrastructure is still there, if repurposed. The modern construction around much of False Creek seems to have just replaced what was there before. Maybe I just haven't been to the right parts.
