This rare surviving 1894 Victorian home was one of the first homes built in Fairview Slopes, Vancouver. Within a decade, houses covered the entire neighborhood. Shaw House draws from the Italianate style with elements of the Eastlake style, such as elaborate gingerbread fretwork in the gable ends and a two-storey square bay window with brackets. Lots in Fairview went on the market in 1891, the year the first Cambie Bridge was completed across False Creek. When James and Emma Shaw lived here, their house faced 7th Avenue and there were salmon-bearing creeks half a block away on either side of the house.

For many years, this house remained vacant and had deteriorated significantly. In 2003, it was turned to face Ash Street and restored as part of a larger commercial project.

My all-time favourite animé character! Watching this series was the catalyst that prompted me to finally get my motorcycle licence.
