58-49 : Station Square Burnaby

Mark

 

This is the Station Square area of Burnaby from 1958. You get a great view of the Ford Motor Plant, which has several of it’s own posts. The major street just below the Ford Plant is Kingsway. To the right of the Ford Plant you see Silver Avenue, McKay Avenue and Willingdon Avenue.

    I worked at this Ford plant in 1961-62 – nice memories of some very special people.

    Oh wow! Very detailed.
    I can see two Nabob Foods buildings. Wonder if they roasted coffee beans there.
    Ford must have kept tractor parts, for there are around 50 tractors on the back lot.

      My Uncle worked at Nabob in Burnaby for 35 years. Originally he was a spice miller. I believe they changed the plant over to coffee in the late 1960's / early 1970's.

    There is the Astor Hotel, where one could have a pint of beer and gaze at forbidden fruits.
    At least the old Royal bank and smaller side buildings still there, as of today.
