Irene Hoffar Reid was part of the first class of the Vancouver School of Decorative and Applied Art in 1925 and was a member of the first graduating class in 1929. From 1933 to 1937 she taught drawing and painting at the Vancouver School of Art.

This piece, likely painted after her return from studying in England at the Royal Academy in London alongside Vera Weatherbie, is an interesting early scene from 1932 depicting homes in East Vancouver from under the Georgia Viaduct. Painted in the midst of the economic depression, the work gives the sense that Reid sought to depict the social realities of the city from a vantage point other than the mountains and water. She would often go on sketching trips to the North Vancouver Reservation and the squatter’s huts under the Burrard Street Bridge.
