Image - Sailor's HallJoin James Johnstone, Strathcona resident, house historian and community curator for a conversation and pictorial journey through Vancouverís Strathcona neighbourhood.

Johnstoneís focus will be on the forgotten Strathcona, the area north of Hastings and on East Hastings the spine that joins the northern and southern areas of Strathcona. North Hastings is home of some of Vancouverís oldest and most fascinating built heritage.

Strathcona North is host to the ghosts of R.H. Alexanderís milltown, Japantown, the Alexander Street red light district and the site of some of Vancouverís bloodiest labour history. Much is gone of the old neighbourhood, and much is under threat of demolition for future redevelopment.

Through Johnstoneís personal slide collection and story telling you will have the opportunity to imagine what it was like then and what it could be like in the future.
