Biographical history

The Grandview Chamber of Commerce was first organized in 1918 with aims of promoting the welfare of merchants and residents in the Commercial Drive area of Vancouver. It was the Chamber that began publishing The Highland Echo in 1918. The Chamber became inactive for a number of years, but it was revived in 1949. It then became involved with civic development (parkland, traffic, parking) and promotional activities such as Christmas tree decorations.
