This is the Hastings-Sunrise area of Vancouver from 1957. You get an excellent view of Taylor Manor, a home for the elderly, and the Provincial Industrial Home for Girls. You can also make out Empire Stadium, Hastings Racecourse and the PNE off in the distance. This is one year before the wooden roller coaster was constructed. The street running left/right near the bottom of the image is Boundary Road.

    And stores at Cassiar and Hastings, with houses on Pender, since torn down for the 911 E-Comm centre and the Cassiar Tunnel.

    The ‘new’ Empire Stadium destroyed a nice golf course on the top of the Windemere street hill.

    Also interesting is Cassiar Street, before it became part of the Trans Canada Highway
