About Stamp

Hogan's Alley
Hogan's Alley in Vancouver's Strathcona neighbourhood was an African-Canadian community that became a vibrant destination for food and jazz until it was removed in the 1960s to make way for new construction.

Pairing real photographs with photo-inspired illustrations helped Smith draw together the physical legacy and the memories of a neighbourhood.

"The community had a real sense of pride. We wanted to honour that by showing the real people who lived there," explains Smith. "We used watercolour illustrations to bring a sense of nostalgia to the backgrounds, to represent the fond memories and feelings past residents had for their communities."
