It's time once again for the City of Vancouver Heritage Awards, and since our photos have been part of several major awards submissions (among them, Christ Church Cathedral, and the Blanca Street Residence), I thought it entirely apropos to feature this photo of the Campbell Residence, lovingly restored, completed (the entire top floor was mostly unfinished when we first photographed it as construction began) and updated by owner and VHF Founding Pillar Janet Campbell, architect Robert Lemon, and Murray Wystrach Construction.
