Curious - how did the painter get a bird's eye view in 1878? Did they have some kind of balloon back then?

First they painted a really tall tower on a floating platform, then they painted the view from the top of it.

Have fun exploring this one, then! It includes: Blanchard Street, Gorden Street, Fisguard Street, Courtnay Street, Bellville Street, Straits of Fuca, and Road to Sannich.
I see Pendora Avenue as well.
Sadly, it shows no name for Princes/Princess Avenue, leaving the conundrum unresolved.

They didn’t have speech to text back then you actually had to know how to spell things.
that’s right. back then they had to check they’re spelling several times to make sure it was right to put on there maps. even then your never sure.

All of the faded lanterns along Fisgard in Chinatown have been replaced by new ones! Looks much better. The photo shows both new and old ones while they were putting them up.
