Robsonstrasse in Days of Yore

CVA 778-341 - 1100 Robson Street south side 1974

Crop of CVA 778-341 – 1100 Robson Street south side 1974. In addition to cropping this photo, I’ve improved it (to my taste, at least) colour- and otherwise.

We are looking at the south side of Robson above, between Thurlow and Bute streets in the mid-1970s. Below, is a very fetching scene, in my judgement (note the effective use of light and shadow), of the same block, but across the street and made about a decade earlier.
