What: Looking west at the intersection of Hastings and Carrall in 1906 with the original BC Electric railway building on the left.

A thriving business district where the CPR train lines which connected the Burrard Inlet with False Creek cut through and where a few years later, the Mercantile bank would set up shop.

Current Use:  Infamy – part of the most impoverished urban area in Canada with the highest per capita heroin-related deaths in North America.

Court Cases Heard: Henderson v Canadian Timber and Saw Mills limited. Appeal 31 July 1906

Henderson was hired at $200/month and was due to manage the new mill when it opened.  The new contract was to be $2500 per annum but he was dismissed without notice. The courts awarded him $600 which was upheld at the Vancouver appeal.
