139 East Lower Keith Rd.
(Architectural Drawing 1946)

Hillside Baptist Church
City of North Vancouver, B.C. Canada

"The City of North Vancouver is separated from Vancouver by the Burrard Inlet. It is surrounded on three sides by the District of North Vancouver."  and is located on the slope of Fromme Mountain.  (Link 1.)  Keith Road is the street on the lower side of Victoria Park which crosses Lonsdale Ave., the main commercial street in the City of North Vancouver.  Keith Road is, therefore, on the slope, hence "Hillside", of Fromme Mountain.

Although the architectural drawing are dated 1946 and 1949, the City Directory at the North Vancouver Archives has no listing of 139 East Keith Road until 1950.  Listing then continue for Hillside Baptist at this address until 1973.
