Photo - Salt Building 1933Heritage Vancouver and the City of Vancouver Archives invite you spend an afternoon touring South East False Creek, tasting beer along with salty snacks and viewing the photography of Leslie Hossack.

Historian Isaac Vanderhorst will lead you on an interactive discovery of the industrial history of South East False Creek. Isaac will uncover surviving industrial remnants of former building sites, and tell unique stories about momentous events from the area's forgotten past.

One of the outstanding stories you will hear is the pivotal role played by over 3000 men and women involved in the shipbuilding industry on this site during the First and Second World Wars. This area became the Olympic Village Site and is now being transformed into the Village at False Creek.

After the tour we will head to the Legacy Liquor store, taste a range of beer and nibble on some salty snacks. At the Legacy you will have the opportunity to meet Leslie Hossack and view a selection of her photographs from her new photography exhibition, "Vancouver's Village 2008-2011". Leslie's exhibit is on display at the City of Vancouver Archives until April 13.
