Heritage inventory of Vancouver schools

Series consists of two subseries: "Inventory forms" and "Research files", relating to the preparation of an inventory and report containing heritage evaluation analysis of Vancouver's school buildings. The consultant's final report (filed at 79-D-5 file 19) was presented by the Heritage Advisory Committee to the Standing Committee on Planning and Development; it then formed on clause of a report presented to Council by the Standing Committee on 15 June 1982. The "Inventory forms" subseries (1982) contains information on each school building such as construction date, history, architecture, and urban context, and general heritage evaluation. The "Research files" subseries (ca. 1900-1982) consists of background files (including photographs taken for quick reference purposes by the consultant), inventory forms (including photographs), and the consultant's report. All schools were assigned a site number, so both subseries are arranged in site number order.

Heritage inventory research files and building photographs

Series consists of research files on category A and B heritage designated buildings in Vancouver compiled in 1978 under the supervision of Edward Gibson of Simon Fraser University, further to the passing of the province's Heritage Conservation Act. Most of the files contain data sheets, architectural and historical research notes, copies of land title documents, bibliographies, and reprinted articles. Most files also contain a summary document prepared in 1979. Also part of this series are the buildings photographs (June 1978) removed from the files (now assigned item identifiers with the prefix CVA 409, there are corresponding 35 mm and 120 mm negatives). Both the files and the photographs are arranged alphabetically by building name.

Heritage survey reports and photographs

Series consists of reports and associated negatives relating to the Heritage Advisory Committee's apparent desire to conduct a photographic and analytic heritage survey which was broader in scope and breadth than previous surveys, probably further to the passing of the province's Heritage Conservation Act in 1977. This inventory was a 1978 summer project of the Heritage Advisory Committee, funded by B.C. Heritage Trust (for the project supervisor) and Young Canada Works (for students who carried out the work). Heritage Advisory Committee member Richard Henriquez met at the beginning of the project with the newly hired project supervisor, architecture student Douglas J. Frankson, and with Edward Gibson of Simon Fraser University, to establish criteria and methodology. Increased scope meant including buildings which had previously been considered of less social (and architectural) interest, while increased breadth related to a more thorough documentation of all areas of the city. However, the whole of Vancouver was not completed; priorities were the Downtown/West End local areas as well as other areas which had previously been little considered. The resulting photo survey identified pre-1950 buildings which retained their original design, and covered the following local areas: Downtown, Fairview, Grandview-Woodland, Hastings-Sunrise, Kensington-Cedar Cottage (east of Commercial/Victoria only), Killarney, Kitsilano, Marpole, Mount Pleasant, Renfrew-Collingwood, Riley Park (Main to Fraser only, north of 25th Avenue only), Strathcona, Victoria-Fraserview (east of Victoria only), and the West End. Each image is of one building and all are identified by address. The negatives at CVA 786 are arranged in film number order (CVA 786-1 to CVA 786-110).
