Walking the tracks in Kits

Walking the tracks in Kits
Bleed under mat

Artist: John Crittenden


The name 'Kitsilano' is derived from the name of a Squamish chief, 'Xats'alanexw'. The home of First Nations people for untold thousands of years this beautiful area has evolved from very dense forest to several highly populated neighbourhoods in just over 150 years. I'm not sure that's progress but it is a very interesting and beautiful place. I've walked many times from Granville Island to Jericho Park and back, especially in the early spring and late fall. With Burrard Street to the east, Alma Street to the west, and 16th Avenue to the south, Kits is located in the West Side of Vancouver, along the southern shore of English Bay. Close proximity to downtown Vancouver, walking distance to parks, beaches and popular Granville Island has made the neighbourhood a very desirable community to live. - John Crittenden

About This Series

It has been said that the beauty of old Europe knows no equal. This collection proves that to be incorrect. Even before the camera Vincent knew: "It often seems to me that the night is much more alive and richly colored than the day." - John Crittenden
