CVA 447-331 – Robson and Howe [Streets S.E. corner] 1968 WE Frost photo.
This was once the downtown site of Chapters bookstore. Rumour has it that a sportswear arm of Canadian Tire will be the next retail resident of the SE corner of Robson and Howe. At the location where Anne Muirhead Florist was in the late 60s, I think there was in the 1990s another bookstore; this one was an antiquarian shop and, if memory serves, its specialty was art and music-related books and scores. I believe the owner moved his stock to the North Shore after leaving this site.
