Even though my blogging hasn’t been as frequent since the dark day in hockey last week, I am fully capable of cranking out the third weekly “WTS – What the Surrey”.
If you’re just tuning in, find out more about WTS in this post. I have to thank everyone for their guesses, and feedback, including those that have sent along some really positive comments about WTS. Also, Dave Chesney left another question in last week’s comments “If you really want a brain teaser for your readers, see if anyone can tell you the name of 154th Street in Surrey, in particular in North Surrey,” so feel free to answer that one in the comments below as well.
Today’s trivia challenge is in two parts, both of which are going to be a little interactive hopefully to keep everyone in the game a little longer (and of course, to keep the Surrey education going).
1) Trivia: I took this photo last weekend after walking by the latest Liquidation World’s. The business that used to occupy that space shut down in 2005 and I’m pretty glad that I got to visit it one last time with my niece before it did. Can you name what legendary establishment that used to stand in this location? Also, feel free to share your fond experiences in the comments when you guess (hint: mmm snocones).
2) Call for Answers: While looking up the vicinity of the place in question 1, I came across something a little puzzling on Google Maps. Apparently the parking lot roadway at Central City (that would take you from Zellers to Future Shop) is called the “Milton Datus Hammond Memorial Drive”. Now… is Google Maps just going a little nutty because I never heard the mall roadway being called this before or is there really a story behind a dedication here?
If you know what used to be in question 1 and/or the story behind question 2, please leave your answers in the comments section. As per usual, if you have anything you’d like to donate as a prize, fire me an email on the Contact Form.
