From Kitsilano by Frederick H. Varley, a depiction of the home he shared with his wife and kids on Point Grey Road. From Kitsilano Living Magazine in May of 2008:

Varley’s 1932 painting of the view from his now-demolished Point Grey Road house sold for $207,000.
Today, 3857 Point Grey Road is on the site of the Jericho Tennis Club and its tennis bubbles. But in the late 1920s and early 1930s, it was the location of the modest home of Varley. Varley executed a luminous painting of his house, its neighbour, and the surrounding landscape in 1932. From Kitsilano is small but beautiful, a classic Vancouver scene of Kits, English Bay and the North Shore mountains.

Thanks again for the submission Diana!
