Compared to the cities I'm used to, Vancouver doesn't have much in the way of heritage architecture. Let's face it--if not for the railway, Vancouver would have remained just another seacoast provincial logging town. A lot of what older architecture did exist has already been ground to dust in the path of Downtown's condo boom. Here and there, though, history is evident.
Take this succession of buildings: from left to right there's Sinclair Centre, 675 West Hastings, and Harbour Centre, respectively products of the 1900s, the 1930s, and the 1970s. Through changing styles and advancing years, the city builds itself ever upward.
