Indian village and museum, Stanley Park

File consists of drawings depicting various buildings designed for an "Indian village" or "Indian museum" to be located in the Lumberman's Arch area of Stanley Park. Five of the drawings are of buildings designed by Henry E.C. Carrey for the Arts, Historical and Scientific Association of British Columbia, who came up with the original idea for a collection of buildings to represent a model First Nations village. When the project failed to garner funding, the Association handed the project off to the Parks Board.

Two later drawings by Parks Board Superintendent A.S. Wooton are for a smaller, single building referred to as an "Indian museum" proposed for the same site.

Carry, Henry E.C.
