| James Johnstone, House Historian is leading walking tours in Strathcona, and will reveal Jimi Hendrix connections to Vancouver.
Here's the message from James Johnstone, House Historian.
In doing some extra research to prepare for my upcoming walking
tours of Strathcona this Saturday I stumbled on a new Hendrix family
connection to Strathcona. Everyone knows about 827 East Georgia, the
house where Nora Hendrix lived for a number of decades in the 1940s and
1950s but this evening while researching something totally unrelated to
the Hogan's Alley I found another house where Ross and Nora Hendrix
lived in 1911. This second, or should I say first Strathcona Hendrix
home, will be revealed on the tour.
Departures are at 10am and 2pm from the Heatley Block on the SW
corner of East Hastings and Heatley Avenue. Parking is ample and free
on Hastings and nearby.
Cost is $15 per person
for those who can't make it this Saturday, these tours will be
offered periodically on a request basis whenever there is a minimm of 6
people wanting to go on a tour.
Yours in history,
703 Hawks Avenue
