Lonsdale Ave., Present
One of the Enterprising Institutions of North Vancouver-
New Departure in Machinery—The Officers.
Prior to the advent of the Lonsdale estate, sub-division J7.|, as a
marketable properly, in 1903, there
was no attempt at the formation of
a town in North Vancouver, The
whole district embraced by tin
municipality was virtually a terra
incognita to the great mass of
Vancouver citizens who inspected
the opposite shores very much as
Moses of old viewed the promised
land, /. 1'.. from a distance; but
with this important difference, that
they were mil to be denied an early
participation in the development of
its resources. For when Lonsdale
was open for selection there was a
keen demand lor sites, both business and residential, and from that
dale the progressive history ol
Vancovcr's visa-vis may be said
to have commenced. In this connection it may be desirable to explain that this Lonsdale properly
commanded the key to the whole
municipality, and. by reason of its
position as
bad    prevented    the     speedier
settlement of the whole district.
Forseeillg the great possibilities
which lay in store for the place,
and the opportunities an enterprising linn would command (or doing

in the early part oi this year.
The company has always devoted itself to the best interests of
North Vancouver, and in fostering
the settlement of the community,
one of the particular branches being the domiciling of people on the
land.   Winn the number of resi
deuces, now occupied by
happy and thriving families,
is taken into account, it will be admitted that this policy has tesulted
in a striking success, bencfically
both for the company and the in
dividual. With a pay-roll of
$3,000 a month, all circulated
locally, it can be seen that the
company has large interests at
slake, and are a voiv powerful
factor in the support ol this young
town. The employees of the company are naturally all residents,

been able to   secure   homes   for
