False Creek Photos

False Creek is an inlet from the sea now lined with upscale highrise apartments, maritime, history & science museums, & Granville Island Market. Small pedestrian ferry boats stop at various points along False Creek. The use of False Creek as a major location of Expo 86 precipitated the area's redevelopment.
