Yale Hotel Greeting Card


Description & Details

The Yale, at earliest memory, has origins as a 'bunkhouse' in 1884, lodging Canadian Pacific Railway workers who clear the town site with Swede saw and double-bit axe, and grade the original layout of downtown streets. This first building in the area, constructed in 1889 by Vancouver's largest property owner is the beginning of Vancouver's Iconic Yaletown.

Laughing Hand

Keith McKellar, born in New Westminster in 1947, migrated to the bush town of Prince George with his family in 1952. The boom and bust fifties and sixties of Prince George gave him a keen eye and open heart for the characters of the logging towns, construction camps and the bush-shack families. He worked at sixty-five different jobs in several fields, before becoming the professional artist Laughing Hand. He composes live, on location, portrait caricature of Vancouver's vintage Cafes and Theatres.
