Image - StrathconaThe neighbourhood today known as Strathcona was home to Vancouver’s first ethnic enclaves. Whether it was Little Italy, Blacks in Hogan's Alley, Japan Town, the Jewish neighbourhood, even a Newfie enclave, they all started here.

Strathcona-based house history researcher and neighbourhood heritage activist James Johnstone has spent the last decade researching the history of over 700 Vancouver houses, 250 of which are in his East End neighbourhood.

Join Heritage Vancouver on a stroll through the streets and alleys of Vancouver’s first neighbourhood as James shares some of the many fascinating stories he has uncovered concerning the people who built and lived in the houses he has researched in the area.
