Homeless in Vancouver: Which one would Hansel & Gretel go into?

      Who can guess what wayward German children would do?

      Personally I crush on orange more than grape so I’d choose the heritage house at 117 West 10th Avenue.

      Of course, that’s not to slight the purple heritage home next door at 115 West 10th Avenue or the heritage homes on the other side of the street; they’re all quite nice—they’re just not my colour.

      Hard to believe they had orange paint back then

      The heritage plaque describes the orange home as a two-storey Queen Anne cottage built circa 1895. It features elaborate fretwork decorations, turned columns, and an elaborate porch railing.

      According the the heritage plaque, the house was restored by the Davis family in 1980. Good job Davis family!

      Under the heritage plaque another sign declares the house is privately owned and the restoration was “completed without any government assistance”.

      Across the street on the south side of the block is the famous “Christmas tree bike”.
