BO-52-357 : Metrotown
This is the Metrotown area of Burnaby from 1952. The main street running through the photo is Kingsway. The area where Metrotown stands now is a Ford Auto Plant, a Kelly-Douglas Company warehouse and an old school. You can even see the foundation of an even older school beside this one. Two years after this photo was taken, the Robert Simpson Company acquired the land, tore down the school and nearby houses, and built the first Sears in Burnaby.
