Vancouver Ave was probably named after the explorer Captain George Vancouver.
Vancouver Ave was also known as Vancouver St. “In response to a query, the Deputy Town Clerk of Mount Albert advised the Chief Surveyor (23/12/1980) that the correct name was Vancouver Street” (Auckland Libraries, n.d.). However, Vancouver Ave is what is currently used on maps.
Columbia Rd runs off the south west side.
On the south west side of the street, numbers run from 1 to 3. On the north east side numbers run from 2 to 26.
