BO-47-2578 : Hastings Burnaby

Mark

 

This is Hastings Street in Burnaby from 1947. The street at the bottom of the image running left/right is Ingleton Avenue. Off near the top of the image, you can see the building which is now the Confederation Community Center on Willingdon Avenue. You also get a good view of Pender and Albert Streets.

    Very tall building with barn-domed roof on the south side of Hastings at Ingleton at the bottom of the photo was the former Hastings Theatre (cinema) but by the time of the photo was Ander’s pharmacy.
    See the online City directors for Vancouver or New Westminster for various years from 1910 to 1955 at the Vancouver Public Library website. http://www.vpl.ca/bccd

    I grew up in this neighbourhood so its my favourite photo so far! The only distinguished buildings I recognized are Gilmore and Rosser Schools (http://i.imgur.com/cfvz7.jpg) Quite a few of the storefronts are still exist on Hastings Street. I used this handy photo set to identify some of the buildings: http://www.flickr.com/photos/bobkh/sets/72157600033713993/detail/
