When a “Shooting Gallery” Was Where Guns Were Fired

CVA – Sp P74 – [The interior of a shooting gallery on Cordova Street] ca 1901. (This appears to have been 27 West Cordova Street – according to the City Directory – William Blassing, proprietor. Note: By zooming on the target area, I was able to identify, I think, a wooden (?) deer, pheasant, and hare).

CVA 677-777 – Cordova St. Vancouver, B.C. 1890? George T Wadds photo. (Blassing’s shooting gallery was located, I believe, in the foreground of the right side of the street. The site of the shooting gallery today is probably where the Hindenburg club is; but I’m quite certain that the gallery was in an earlier – probably wood frame – structure.)
