#!markdown Well done. I have a couple books on the early days of North Van. One about logging in the Capilano Valley before it was dammed. The Bowser Trail and Cap Pacific trails are the old rail line that carried logs from the valley down to the foot of Pemberton Ave. If you go to the end of Rabbit Lane in West Van and follow the gravel road until you can't go further, off to the right is the remains of the railway trestle. Lynn Valley, The Early Days was written by The Scribe, Draycott. That bronze sculpture at Lynn and Mountain Highway is him and the street is named in his honour.
