Scope and Content
Photograph of the demolition of the Bonsor Recreation Centre taken in August 1987. Caption on original matte read: "Bonsor Recreation Centre being demolished in August, 1987. As both portions of the building had been moved to Bonsor from their original sites, and considerable interior renovations had been made to both buildings, it was deemed by municipal officials that the historical significance of maintaining the buildings was not justifiable. Hence the buildings were destroyed to make way for the new, modern 'Bonsor Recreation Complex'.".

Heritage Value
The Capitol Hill Community Hall was designed by local architect Harold Cullerne (1890-1976). After Cullerne returned from service during the First World War, he joined J.H. Bowman in a partnership that lasted from 1919 to 1934. After Bowman retired in 1934, Cullerne practiced on his own, continuing to work on schools and institutional buildings, such as the Art Deco Hollywood Theatre in Vancouver. In 1944, Cullerne designed a community hall for Capitol Hill; the scheme was delayed, and redesigned before it was finally built after the end of the Second World War. A simple front gabled roof hall structure, this hall is a monument to community spirit, erected by community members on a volunteer basis, and used for community events for over half a century. The hall replaced two earlier structures, both destroyed by fire, that had served the same purpose.
