False Creek Indian Reserve, Burrard Inlet, B.C. : compiled from plans of record in the Dept. [Department] of Indian Affairs

Map is a plan of the Kitsilano Point area showing the area currently known as Kitsilano Beach and Vanier Park, and streets and blocks between Maple Street and Centre Street (Granville Street) and First Avenue to Third Avenue. The plan shows in detail the land designated as the Kitsilano Indian Reserve, including the original reserve as constituted prior to Confederation, the addition made by the Joint Commission on 15th June 1877, and land leased to Harrison Mills T. and T. Co. Map also shows the location of Canadian Pacific Railway land, the Vancouver and Lulu Island Railroad, Rat Portage Lumber Company, Tait's Mill, the Third Avenue Bridge and bathing beach. Annotations in ink indicate the location of Sam Greer's house and garden and nearby spring on what is now known as Kitsilano Beach. A note made on the front of the map by J.S. Matthews in 1930 reads "This blueprint was given me about 1928 by Mrs. J.Z. Hall, dau[ghter] of Sam Greer, and had evidently been attached to a letter from Hon. H.H. Stevens, M.P. to Mr. Greer, dated Ottawa, May 15, 1923 with enclosure from Dr. Scott Indian Office, Ottawa, 9th May 1923. The notation "House" and "Garden" were, when first received by me, on pencil, rudely written, perhaps by Mr. Greer himself (quite and most likely). The marks were inked in with Indian ink by me."
