These election results were published in the “Vancouver Daily World” on December 10, 1888.  The winners took office in January of 1889 for a term of one year.  The results for Mayor are not included, as David Oppenheimer had no opponents, and so was acclaimed as Mayor prior to this election.  To see the early Vancouver Ward boundaries, click here.
