It wasn't long ago that Granville Island was nothing more than an oil-soaked shanty town full of decrepit warehouses hidden under the Granville Bridge.
I remember driving there in the early 1980s and getting stuck in the mud. Now it's one of the city's most popular destinations for both locals and tourists.
Many old buildings remain, like this one that has housed Granville Island Brewing since 1984, and there are some pretty exciting plans for the future of Granville Island.
