Here is an old map of Vancouver from 1886. You’ll notice that most of it is forests and that False Creek went well into East Vancouver. During the first World War the eastern part of False Creek, which formerly ran to Clark Drive, was filled in by the Great Northern Railway and Canadian Northern Pacific Railway to create land for their terminals and rail yards.

Here is a similar map of present day Vancouver:

Just for fun here is a map of Vancouver Super Mario World style for the SkTrain stations.
