This is the 1000 block of Robson Street (just west of Burrard). A block now full of the mainly American big box shops (e.g., Tommy Hilfiger’s, Levi’s).
But this block in the 1970s was known as Robsonstrasse. There are no U.S. big box shops to be seen in the image above. It is dominated, instead, by mom & pop shops. Near the middle of the photo is one of the famous Robson eateries: the Schnitzel House.
