I was born in 76', but I remember the old Woolco at Brentwood. The orange door chinese food restaurant in Vancouver (near pender?). I remember the sea festival with the bathtub boats, and the PNE when they had the logger's show.

What a different time. Back when Vancouverites were impressed with the simpler things. A time before Fresh Slice pizza came here and shit in our collective mouths.

Chinatown was definitely the place to be back then - dim sum, grocery shopping, etc. I remember circling Pender and Keefer over and over again looking for parking spots on the streets.

76 was the year my parents came to Vancouver from Winnipeg and fell in love. We ended up moving here for good in 88

Just an FYI for everyone, that weird building with the half completed second floor on the corner of Gore and Hastings is gone now.
They demolished it about a month ago.

Supposedly, there is going to be a lot of redevelopment in the area in the next few years.

Oops, this building was built yet in 1976.

Had to have been, 'cause Safeway's parking lot was right there.

my mom would take my brother and i on the old bc transit gmc buses from the suburbs on saturdays to chinatown to buy groceries (no such thing as TnT back then). i still remember the yellow/brown/white color schemes and reading the buzzer flyer. my dad would get off his shift and meet us there after work and we would go to ming's for dinner.

back then you could walk from chinatown to woodwards and further on to simpsons-sears in harbor centre and it was totally safe... try doing that now. on the lower level of harbor centre there used to be a bakery that made turtle bread and that was my treat for the day.
