St. Paul's Hospital

As mentioned in Zanepost, this is a view of part of the roof of St. Paul's Hospital on Burrard Street, Vancouver.

Completed in 1894 by the Sisters of Providence, a Catholic women's religious order, the hospital grew throughout the decades into an important research and teaching facility serving the Lower Mainland of British Columbia.

In a city that is largely dominated by modern glass and steel architecture, the hospital stands out as an example of a previous time period. The building caught my eye and so I stopped and drew it from a coffee shop across the street.
