Since then the city began to grow and is now the location of some of the most popular neighborhoods and Yaletown is considered Vancouver’s little Soho. There are also the memories, of the past at The Roundhouse Community Center, which houses Vancouver’s first passenger train Engine No. 374, in 1887 that is on display.
