CornerSpotted: Looking West At Water & Carrall Street

Earlier this week we asked readers to guess the intersection pictured in this historical photo taken way back in 1888. One commenter guessed the correct intersection of Water Street at Carrall Street - right in the heart of Gassy Jack Square, a noteworthy tourist destination in the middle of Gastown. While the dirt roads have been replaced with faux cobblestone streets, the Alhambra Hotel building still remains today and is recognized as one of Vancouver's most precious heritage buildings.
