“Tales From the West End” is an evening to explore and experience our community through stories about our common past. The event is held at one of Vancouver’s intriguing historic sites, formerly known as “Maxine’s Hideaway” and now home to a JJ Bean coffee shop. 

 

November, historical interpreter, researcher, event co-ordinator and tour guide Jolene Castillou Cumming is our featured story teller.  She will share intriguing local stories about E. Pauline Johnson Tekahionwake, who today still remains somewhat of an enigma.  You are encouraged to listen, sketch and bring your own stories and historic photographs of the West End to share with the community.

October, retired UBC history professor and author Bob McDonald is our featured story teller. Bob specialized in teaching BC History and published a book on early Vancouver history, “Making Vancouver”. His story will focus on an early West End family, the Bell-Irvings. You are encouraged to listen, sketch or bring your own stories and historic photographs of the West End to share with the community.
September, artist and tour guide Michael Kluckner is back as our featured story teller. Michael has more tales to tell from his research on West End resident Mrs. Henshaw.  You are encouraged to listen, sketch and bring your own stories and historic photographs of the West End to share with the community.
