On June 13th, 1886, the entire city of Vancouver, BC went up in flames. All that remained was the Hastings Mill Store, which was built out of stone, and a few remaining buildings along False Creek. As a long-time Vancouverite, this is part of why I still can’t stop gawking when I walk around downtown Dublin. Many of the old buildings, ones that I have read about in centuries old deeds, are still standing. Amazing.
