My History Walks in Vancouver are listed second in this list of 6. Nice to be included. Especially since my tours are limited to two short periods in February/March and August/September when I come back to Vancouver from Italy. The next East End Vancouver/Strathcona History Walk departs 696 East Hastings at 10am on Saturday March 10th and repeats for the last time until August on March 24th.

What happened in the world when certain sections of Casperia's Castle Walls and parts of houses were being repaired or rebuilt and marked with a dated terracotta tile? From 1492 to 1600, there was a lot going on in the world and a lot of repairs going on in Aspra, now Casperia. This is the first half of a very long article. I hope you find it interesting.
