Pics from the Curbside: 2018-09-23 to Shaughnessy

First up, Canuck Place Children’s Hospice Vancouver at Glen Brae, built in 1910:

These must be for cars, but then how do the people get out...? Tenements in this area all had garages like this; must have been popular at that specific point in time.
