Cow Shit Alley! Imagine this same stretch of East End Vancouver alley little less than 100 years ago when horse drawn carriages still dominated the streets and alleys like this were lined with stables for horses and dairy cattle. Every morning this narrow alley was filled with a small herd of cows gathered from barns along the way that were driven along this stretch of road down to Campbell Avenue where they crossed Prior Street to be grazed on the expanses of the old False Creek flats. You can guess how the alley got its name. sStrathcona oldtimers still call this hilly stretch of alley between Jackson and Campbell Cow Shit Alley. If you look carefully at some of the old garages on either side you suddenly see that they were indeed first built to house cattle and horses. Come for a walk with me this Saturday, March 24th along the legend and story-filled alleys and streets of Vancouver's old East End. My last Strathcona History Walk for this season departs 10am from 696 East Hastings. Tour lasts 2.5 to 3 hours and if you are lucky we might get invited inside a house or two along the way. #vancouverviews #seevancouver #igersvancouver #igerswalkingtour #heritagehouses #historicneighbourhood #oldhouses #ethnichistory #immigranthistory #littleitaly #cowshit #walkwithme #timetravel #historywalk #bestofvancouver #vancouverisawesome
