Picture of the Day - Growing Up

All things being equal, cities seem to grow out before they grow up (figuratively and literally). Vancouver started its history as a community of one-story street-front commercial buildings and single-family houses with the occasional apartment building. It then slowly built up over the past 60 years. In the South of Fraser, it seems like the same pattern is happening. The City of Langley was built out long before my time and is in the process of building up now. The following picture is from one of the former single-family neighbourhoods North of the Nicomekl River.
