Plan for Warren Harding memorial

Item is a blueprint copy of an architectural drawing showing a cross section and site plan for the memorial to the deceased U.S. President Warren G. Harding in Stanley Park. It has been annotated and signed in the top right corner in ink. It is numbered "Sheet 1".

Bute Street (corner Barclay)

Item is a photograph on an album page, annotated with "Bare trunks and arms are all that remain after these trees are reduced to make habitable this new apartment block 'Coniston Lodge'. The trees on the other side of this block are similarly treated."

Comox Street (between Burrard and Thurlow)

Item is a photograph on an album page, annotated with "This is one of the worst examples of boulevard planting. It shows both inner and outer planting on the left side, while on the right it will be noted that the outer boulevard is planted in one section of the block and inner planting on the other section. The trees on the left (heavy forest maples) average ten to twelve feet spacing."

Barclay Street (between Jervis and Broughton)

Item is a photograph on an album page, annotated with "Another case of boulevarding common to the whole City and especially to the West End. Note the close planting of the heavy forest type of maple on the right, which act as a shroud to the houses fronting thereon, and the three straggling trees on the left."

Seaton Street

Item is a photograph on an album page, annotated with "An example of conditions often met with. On the left (North side of street) the sidewalk is on the inside, with outer boulevard; on the right the sidewalk is constructed to the kerb, with inner boulevard. Proper boulevarding under such conditions is impossible. Note the forest maples planted closely together on the left and the occasional tree on the opposite side. An application is on file requesting the City to remove these trees entirely, so as to permit light and air to the houses and to make more effective street lighting at night."

Georgia Street

Item is a photograph on an album page, annotated with "The heavy type of elm is unsuitable for boulevards. In this instance (St. Julien Apartments) these trees have always to be kept heavily pruned, otherwise the lower suites are debarred from light and air. Note the size of the tree in its natural state."
