53-112 : Brentwood Mall

Categories:1953, Air Photo, View-North


This is the Brentwood Mall area of Burnaby from 1953. We just miss the Lougheed Highway at the bottom of the screen. Willingdon Avenue is on the left and the big cluster of trees on the lower quarter of the image is now Brentwood Mall.

    I’ve been a fan of this site since it started.. Never expected to see my house… or the lot where it would be built in 1954. The smattering of houses on the future site of Brentwood Mall. They probably didn’t know that by 1961 they’d be replaced by a mall.. and in the 2010s the mall may be replaced with 50+ story condos.

    No sign of rooftop antennas, 1953 was the year KVOS and CBUT debuted.

    Great to see two images side by side from the same shoot. Also fascinating to look at Hastings St. completely undeveloped.
