Sennasan, you have to go out there and take as many photos as possible, so in 50 years, your work can serve as a reference point like Mr. Herzog's.

Pics of people, places, events, skyscapes, etc.

Anyone have historic pics of Powell Street? Between Main and Dunlevy, to be exact. My old neighbourhood.

That's funny. I was just talking to the wife about this place. We were trying to remember where the old building was. She said it was closer to the white spot and I thought it was closer to the WalMart.

Yeah, the first Batman movie was the campy 60's one.

I saw one in Mexico when I went to Puerto Vallarta.

I remember being at Chuck E cheese in the late 80's but I can't remember which building it was in.

So this should be where white spot is. Which building was Chuck E cheese?

Never mind.

It's now called Jolly Genies.

damn.. since im a young-gun (20), i dont have anything to really contribute..
but thanks for the insight! it's really helpful to know how the city you live in came to be.

i've been in the suburbs since kindergarten, so i dont have memories of dt van at all...
i kinda of remember chinatown, which i doubt has changed all that much...

=[

On a happy note, Save On Meat Coffee Shop is still there. Wonder how the burgers are now that there's no meat shop right there?

I made a post about that but no one replied. I feel so sad now.

This was back in the early 90's, and they were located in the mini-mall where the Subway is just before Samosa Garden.

Now, does anyone know where the Minnam's old Dyno is? I know Eurosport had it at one point in time.

I bought a few things from him. Stuff took forever to show up. Nice enough guy. Biggest beef I had was the place he sent me to have things installed (Installation was inclded in price). Wing Fai Motors on Powell street. Those guys had no idea what they were doing. They went out of business... wAnder why? They're under a new name now or possibly changed ownership.

i always thought that there was another supra gt in n.van somewhere?

there used to be another shop near the intersection of clarke and hastings... i can't remember the name though. i remember paying too much for piaa stuff there... if you young kids out there complain about prices today, you should have seen what it was like 10-15 years ago
