The Roundhouse is pleased to welcome back John Atkin as our historian in residence. John Atkin is an author, historian and heritage advocate who explores Vancouver like few others have, offering interesting and offbeat insights into the city’s architecture, history and neighborhoods. Over the course of a year John will be working with us to develop creative and engaging ways to bring the history of the Roundhouse to life in our community. We were pleased to premier a photographic exhibition John had researched and curated on the history of the Roundhouse.
This project was a coordinated effort between Elsie Roy Elementary School Grade 7 students, John Atkin, and the Roundhouse.
