Putt-putt

2 CV
I see this little Deux Chevaux van in different parts of town fairly regularly.
It's not hard to spot but this is the only time I managed to get a picture of it.

Nordstrom


Up to now Vancouver's (and Canada's) major department stores have been Canadian.
Woodward's, Eaton's, Hudson Bay Co.
Sears is a U.S. company but even when I was a kid we had Simpson Sears in Canada so they felt Canadian.
The landscape is about to change once Nordstrom opens it's store on Granville Mall in September.
The entirely new exterior of the store (formerly Eaton's and then Sears) is pretty well buttoned up.

Pre-War

From The Archives
1937 Buick Straight 8
I spent a while searching online to pin down the year of this Buick.
Once I'd figured it out (within a few years) I noticed the license plate.
1937 Buick Special, San Francisco

When I see things like this I always imagine I can make a great close-up shot.
They never quite turn out.
