A little while ago I shared a collection of historic/archive photos with the Robson Street Business Association and today they returned the courtesy by sending me this awesome Robson Street Video from 1964.

From BC History on YouTube: Robson Street Stores (B&W, sil.) aired on the CBUT (CBC Vancouver) show Town Crier, July 1964. “When I was a kid in Vancouver Robson Street west of Howe was full of shops run by German immigrants and called Robsonstrasse. I often went there on Saturdays with my grandmother after having been at Stanley Park.”
