Discovery, Captain George Vancouver

Mural by Jim McKenzie 1986


Two hundred years ago, False Creek went through to Burrard Inlet and Lost Lagoon. The mural on the west wall of the old Capers store in Dundarave Village depicts a June morning in 1792 when the Discovery, the Chatham, the Sutil and the Mexicana anchored near the island that today is Stanley Park and downtown Vancouver.


The British Captain, George Vancouver, breakfasted with his Spanish counterparts, Dionisio Galiano and Cayetano Valdez. They were the first to explore Indian Arm which the Spanish named "Canal de Sasamat".
