zakman wrote:Another story about Gladstone Road has it that it was once a First Nations trail, which skirted the north side of an old slough in the Hillhurst area. South of Gladstone in Hillhurst, quite a number of circa 1912 homes have back yards with lower elevations than out front. One possible explanation is that builders in the region were aware of the spring slough risk, and elevated the lot with fill, but only in the portion where the house was to be built. Some new home builders have taken advantage of this topography by building houses with walk-out basements on such properties. Has anyone else heard of this?
