I went to waterfront areas many times and last year I also posted some pictures but I deleted it because the name of blog was old one so I will re-post again later after this time.
About Waterfront Skytrain station: Built in 1914 and known as the Canadian Pacific Railway Station, it served as the western terminus for the railroad’s trains arriving from points east, namely Toronto and Montreal. The station served the same purpose until the late 1970s, when CPR moved its trains to the Pacific Central train terminal, close to the site of the in 1965 demolished Great Northern Station near False Creek. Built by the Montreal architectural firm of Barott, Blackader, and Webster, Waterfront Station is neo-classical in style, different from many of the traditional Canadian Pacific stations.

This first picture : In front of the station sits a bronze Angel of Victory statue, crafted by London-born sculptor Coeur de Lion McCarthy. It was commissioned in 1922 in memory of the 1,100 CPR employees who died in World War I. A plaque that also memorialized those who perished in World War II was added in the late 1940s.
