"The Harding Monument: In Stanley park stands this monument to President Harding of the United States. It commemorates his visit to Vancouver on July 26, 1923, and bears testimony to the friendship which has existed without a break between the two countries for over a century. Stanley Park is a remarkable spot -- a large primeval forest right within the city's limits, containing trees of almost inconceivable age and size."
