Vancouver Public Market-1908 (large view)
 
Vancouver Public Market-1908
Limited Edition Giclee print on canvas (sn95)of the Vancouver Public Market in 1908 on Main St. Vancouver, B.C. Canada.

“Vancouver Public Market – 1908” shows Tram #75 in front of the market on a fine autumn day.
The market was located just north of 1st Avenue and just west of Main. It was built on pilings driven into the bed of False Creek and faced East onto Main Street. Streetcar service on Main Street stopped adjacent to market. The market was a grand building complete with a market restaurant and generous skylights and windows. It was 150 ft. wide at the front and housed 92 stalls for vendors, many of which were supplied by produce brought down the Fraser River by the Steamer “Stassa”.

Construction of the market was completed in May 1908. Subsequently it was necessary to move the building back “several feet” to make way for the new Main Street Bridge. 3000 people attended the Grand opening of the market on August 15, 1908. A fire destroyed the structure on November 10, 1925.

Streetcar # 75 was built by BCER in New Westminster shops in 1905. It was a two man, single end. After 44 years of service, Tram # 75 was scrapped in March 1949.
