Taylor Manor - ca. 1915
Taylor Manor - ca. 1915
951 Boundary Road, Vancouver, BC. Statement of Significance Description of Historic Place: Taylor Manor is a three-storey Tudor Revival style building facing east onto Boundary Road. Relative to the modestly-scaled buildings in this mainly residential neighbourhood, Taylor Manor presents an imposing, institutional facade to the street. Set back from the street and surrounded by mature trees, it is located at the northeast corner of a lot that is one and one-half city blocks in width, with a newer institutional building immediately to the north, the remainder of the lot being the open green space of Adanac Park. The historic place consists of the building, the front yard, and the immediate surrounding landscape. Heritage Value: Constructed ca. 1915, the heritage value of Taylor Manor resides in its historical reflection of the social and economic history of Vancouver through the housing of its elderly residents, its Tudor Revival style, its location, its association with Vancouver mayor Louis D. Taylor, its landscaped setting, and its designers. A neighbourhood landmark, Taylor Manor maintains an historical connection to the social and economic history of Vancouver, which in the late 1800s was a frontier city of young, mostly male, working people. As the city aged, so did its population, with destitution exacerbated by seasonal and cyclical economic downturns and city social policy, which was reluctant to sustain financial or physical care for the old and infirm. At the same time, it also represents the emergence of Vancouver's social conscience, as taxpayer support for the elderly was successfully ratified in 1912 through the funding for the construction and operation of a city-run Old People's Home. Architectural value is found in the Tudor Revival style of Taylor Manor, a nostalgic style which evokes genteel living in the English country-house manner. The style, along with the sweeping driveway and large grounds, indicate the desire for a particular exterior perception of the building. The building's architects, the partnership of Richard Thomas Perry and Charles Busteed Fowler, practiced together in Vancouver from 1914. Their largest project was the Vancouver Old People's Home. This project epitomized their strength in combining nostalgic British influences with more modern building forms. There is heritage value in the physical layout of the building, which reflects its construction as a residence for the elderly early in the twentieth century. An institutional complex of narrow corridors accessing individual sleeping rooms and dormitories on the second floor, and segregated common rooms on the first floor, the design and layout of Taylor Manor is the physical manifestation of the perception of the requirements of the elderly at that time. Interestingly, the home contained a number of steep staircases, later recognized as one of the building's drawbacks for housing the elderly. The external and internal symmetry of the building reflects its institutional nature, and a way of easily segregating male and female residents. The building's symmetry, strict interior layout, and Tudor Revival manor-house character are a representation of both "home" and "institution". The current name of the building emphasizes the sometimes-hidden stigma of the elderly in Vancouver society at that time. Pronounced as a reflection of attitudinal changes towards the old and indigent, and in the hope of increasing applications for residency, the original "Old People's Home" became the more glamorous "Taylor Manor" in 1947, named after the late Vancouver mayor Louis D. Taylor. The sitting mayor of Vancouver when the Old People's Home was opened in June 1915, L.D. Taylor was a self-made man who owned the left-leaning Vancouver Daily World newspaper. Taylor served five terms as mayor, and had strong socialist inclinations, emphasizing concerns popular with working people and speaking on behalf of the masses and those less fortunate. Heritage value is also found in the open space around Taylor Manor, and the spaciousness and careful landscaping of the grounds, maintained first by the City, then by the Parks Board. Formal planting of ornamental deciduous and coniferous trees to the front and rear of the building emphasize the formality and country-house feel of the Manor and grounds. The surrounding open space, now Adanac Park, once housed the farming and garden operations for the Home, which generated fruit, vegetables, eggs and other farm produce for the residents. The remainder of the lands adjacent to the Home were the grounds of the Provincial Girls Industrial School.

We went metal chimney from here through the roof. This was mainly due to bad planning. To go masonry all the way would have obsured one window in the bedroom and due to beams and the wall would have been tight work. ....opps. Cost is likely the same but masonry would last longer. .
