Historic Steveston Riverfront (12 photos) – 2015
Steveston is located in the south-west corner of the Vancouver area at the mouth of the Fraser River. It was founded as a small village in 1880 and soon became the hub of British Columbia’s salmon fishing and canning industry. Labourers were at first seasonal but soon began to move into the area year round and were made up of Japanese, First Nations and European. These photos show a re-creation of the original houses for the workers and some of original cannery buildings.
One of the best known houses on the riverfront is the Murakami House built around 1885. My blogging friend Leslie Robinson recently did an excellent post on this house and it is worthwhile taking a look at.
