Bu N158.3 – [Man standing outside shallow building at Pender and Carrall Streets], 1936.
One could be forgiven for not recognizing this as one of the most popular and well-known spots in Vancouver’s Chinatown. The slimmest building in the city and home to Jack Chow Insurance today, it was in the 1930s, apparently, where a stroller could get a hot dog or hamburger for 10 cents!
