1912 – The Sylvia Hotel, Vancouver, British Columbia
Originally built as an apartment block, the Sylvia Court, it was converted to an hotel during the Depression of the 1930’s. It was named after owner Abraham Goldstein’s 12-year-old daughter. The Sylvia Hotel was designated a Heritage Building in March 1976. The building has an excellent overhanging decorative cornice around the top.
