Join Larry Wong, who was born and raised in Chinatown, as he takes you on an intimate tour of Chinatown. Larry is a public historian for the Chinese Canadian Historical Society of B.C. Find out how the World’s Narrowest Building came to be, visit the original site of the CPR Roundhouse before it was moved to Yaletown and find out the history of several heritage buildings such as the Chinese Freemasons and the Yip Sang building built in 1889.

Learn how the Strathcona Property Owners and Tenants Association prevented the demolition of the Strathcona area and a proposed freeway which would have endangered Chinatown as we know it today.
