saint ann's academy.
built in or around 1900, adjacent to the holy rosary cathdral (then not yet a cathedral) on the southwest corner of homer and dunsmuir streets, st. ann's was a parish school, vancouver's first catholic school. for a time, it was apparently considered vancouver's finest, but as with all things it declined. demolished sometime in the 1960s, the site is currently occupied by an office tower block.
from the opposite corner 1900s
looking west down dunsmuir, you can almost smell the fir trees
and a nice context shot, abutting the cathedral, with the birks building, the bay building, both hotels vancouver and the georgia hotel in the arriere-plan
