Banff 0473

The Banff Apartments in Vancouver, B.C. was built in 1909.  Finished in red and green it has survived as a rental building for over a century in one of the most prominent business areas of the city.

The Banff was originally the “Florence Court” residential hotel and was designed by Henry Barton Watson.

I used to work just a block away from this magnificent old building and have always loved its character and balcony decorations.
