The Fountain

Out for a walk the other day, I cut through a little park off Barclay Street. There was a wedding in progress, so I quietly skirted around the middle of the park and stumbled upon this little slice of almost-Europe. The park is called Barclay Heritage Square, and a plaque on the fountain reads:
Donated on Vancouver's Centennial
In tribute to West End pioneers
Samuel Brighouse First Resident arrived 1862
Michael Wilkinson-Brighouse arrived 1887
Jane Ann Wilkinson-Brighouse

By Jane, John and Freda Wilkinson-Brighouse

Post title from this song by Echo and the Bunnymen.
