When my husband and I first moved to East Vancouver in 1999, we received a call from Sharon. My husbands childhood neighbour and babysitter. Sharon asked us to walk by her childhood home, just two blocks away on 2700 Cambridge Street.
Sharon was raised there by her grandparents.
Sharon recently sent us this photo of Burrardview Park, circa late 1930’s. Sharon fondly recalls that the pool was drained and filled during ‘summer’ Mondays. “Swimming was cold and clean on Tuesday, but nice and warm by the weekend – but not so clean.”
Sharon lives in Kelowna.
