August 30, 2011

Sketch for Tuesday August 30, 2011 is of Barclay Manor, part of the Barclay Square Heritage Park at Barclay and Broughton in Vancouver's West-end. The house sits on Barclay Street between Roedde House and the Weeks House. Barclay Manor has 6 rooms available to rent for functions. The house has changed considerably since its construction in 1890 by Lucy and Charles Tetley. It began as a small "L" shaped structure which was moved 15 feet to its current location. Various additions occurred, and in 1909 architect R. J. MacDonald designed a conversion of the house into a private Hospital. From 1919 to 1926 it was known as Rosary Hall, a residence for Catholic working girls, and in 1926 it became a boarding house. The Iredale partnership designed the renovation of the building into a seniors community centre in 1990.
