PD asked me to create one page to display a table of all the streets (or portions of streets) that have been renamed over the time range of the VIHistory datasets. I did that by running the tab-delimited through a few regexs to produce a styled html table and put that into a new page.
PD also asked for a similar page to display a table of all the addresses that were renumbered in 1907. That took a bit more regex processing, as I wanted to created a heading for each street and then a table for all the addresses on that street.

viHistory is a web site that is a teaching, learning and research tool. It's principally about the history of Vancouver Island in British Columbia, but it is also a vehicle for exploring the larger field of Canadian history during the late 19th and early part of the 20th century. It allows census, directory and tax assessment roll data from the late 19th and early 20th centuries to be searched in many ways. It also incorporates IMaP to display historical maps. The project director is Dr. Patrick A. Dunae.
