Less than a college education

what the fuck

Less than an apartment.

Yeahhh… that would be the EAST coast. Not nearly as cheap on the West side, given that people like Paul Allen buy ours.

On the right is the beautiful Ormidale Building (aka “151”) where I lived/worked for parts of the last decade. On the left, the Flack Block, which housed my old office at the alt. weekly Terminal City. Not seen here - but immediately around the corner - my current pub/place of work.

Eaton’s Marine Room restaurant, 515 West Hastings, 1954
Now Harbour Centre, 515 West Hastings was originally Spencer’s Department Store, and then Eaton’s and Sears before becoming SFU’s downtown campus.
Two years before this postcard was produced, Jim Munro and his twenty year-old bride Alice relocated from Ontario to a pink stucco house on Arbutus Street across from Kitsilano Beach because Jim got a job at Eaton’s. After a decade in Vancouver, the couple moved to Victoria and opened Munro’s Books, which is celebrating its 50th anniversary this year. The couple is no longer together, but he’s still running the store and she’s now a Nobel Laureate. For a taste of how the city came across in her stories, see “Alice Munro’s Vancouver.”

Ugh. Looks like the rain returns next week. This is about the time when I start having footwear panic.

Pendletons and books

Looks like somebody might be getting some Robert McGinnis cover art there on the left.
(The last thing I need is more books, but I’m coming for a browse soon, I promise. PS: That lamp is hella jazzy.)
