  1. […] I’m starting with Vancouver, which includes North Vancouver (but NOT Vancouver Centre, or Vancouver South): (DISTRICT 13) (see my Downtown Vancouver-District 22- notes here) […]

  2. Too right, I am looking for relations on 264 Powell St and have found every number in between, but not that one! Seems strange, but hopefully once the indexing is completed we will find these missing entries.
