This set shows “yesterday/today” images of an early shop of one of my favourite Vancouver photographers, Stuart Thomson. It was his shop in the 1910s and ’20s. He later moved up to Robson at Burrard (adjacent to the Toronto Dominion Bank). Before this space on Georgia had been Thomson’s, it had been leased by P. T. Timms
, another outstanding early photographer.
