Street view of the Balmoral

In the '90s, the once-polished Balmoral featured some of the worst living conditions of any single-room-occupancy building in the city. Judy Graves was a City of Vancouver housing inspector during that decade. "Every time that the city inspectors would order them to change the carpets, they’d actually just throw more carpet on top of the old carpet," she recalls. Courtesy of AHA Media
