Wood block street

Wood block street September 5th, 1974 — A street made from wood blocks breaking up in the 100 block of Dunlevy. This quote is from the Scoutmagazine.ca website on January 2016: “Wood blocks were likely chosen as an economical way to originally ‘pave’ city streets since timber was in plentiful supply in and around Vancouver…. The ones that are visible on Dunlevy St. are over 100 years old and likely were installed at some point between 1891 and 1914.” Another thing to notice in this picture is in the bottom right hand corner, my foot, one of hazards of taking pictures with a fisheye lens.
