Transcript of Copy of Granville Island Project Then and Now

Granville Island in
1922 Steps To Granville Island Then and Now Background history for
Granville Island *Granville Island used to be called the False
Creek sand bar. Sam McClay was the man who
spotted this sandbar. He was the person who wanted to develop the sandbar into an island. Sam McClay wanted to turn the sandbar
into an island, but the money for
this was no longer available after
a depression. After this happened, Harry Stevens (a Vancouver alderman) began a campaign to persuade the government to develop the sand bar into an island in 1913. This campaign was successful! The Pacific Dredging Company
was given the contract, then work was started! *The first tenants of Granville Island
worked for the logging, mining, shipping
or construction business.

*These people also made:
-Roof shingles
-Wire rope
-Boilers In 1930 most workers arrived by streetcar In 1930 the only two routes onto Granville Island were; a flight of stairs descending from the
Granville Street Bridge. The only other way to Granville Island
was by a road and rail bridges leading to
the creeks shore. In 1942 special identification cards were issued to the workers to stop saboteurs from entering it. Taylor and Bill Harvey (Barefoot Gang) inspired
marinas, studios, restaurants and an art gallery. Granville Island in 1920 First Nations First Nations people went to the sandbar to collect food First Nations people travelled there by boat. In 1930 Granville Island was known as
Industrial Island. During World War 2, Granville Island became a lifeless place. Aboriginals didn't sleep on the sandbar because
the water could cover the sandbar. Granville island was a place for victims of the bombing of Pearl Harbor to stay. People made industrial stores because it was close to the inlet so it could easily be shipped over. Restaurants and shops continued to grow attracting more people. Ocean Construction Ltd has been on Granville Island for more than 90 years. In 1889 all trees were cut down for timber. Abiotic - rocks, shells, sand, water and the sandbar.

Biotic - fish, bugs, fishermen who travel by boat, birds, clams, shellfish and oysters

was just a Mudflat/Sandbar One of the structures that
still stands today Granville Island in 1981 Photos of what Granville Island used to look like: Fun Facts:

7. In 1889 all trees were cut down for timber Granville Island was originally one sand bar in Vancouver’s False Creek, which was used by local First Nations as places to meet. In 1916, the federally-administered Vancouver Harbour Commission built a seawall around the sand bars and created 35 acres of land to be used by industry. The Vancouver Harbour Commission took property of land to tenants who built their factories and mills in post and beam structures clothe in corrugated tin. For 40 years, industry thrived on the island while the city of Vancouver grew around it. The photos we took and information
we learned after we went to Granville

We also learned that the island is artificial, and not even an island at all. Before this project, we had no idea. This project has shown us that it is possible for just a sandbar to turn into a highly successful island market. This was a fun project and we learned a lot more than we thought we would. Pond Kids Market Granville Island Brewery *First Nations people were a big part of the history of Granville Island and how it began

*On the island there were a lot of First Nations shops
and restaurants and even a place where totem poles were
carved Each house boat had their own little mailbox
at the very start of the little Sea Village Ocean Construction Ltd has been around since 1917. The concrete that is made is made out of water they scoop up from the ocean. Some of the house boats we saw we seemed a little bit more mondurn then we expected. Some abiotic parts of the environment we found were Biotic on abiotic Biotic on abiotic Biotic on Biotic
