A bike route will be installed here. Looking west along East 10th Ave in 1926.  The gully is bridged by Broadway in the centre right area. Clark Drive will follow the gully where China Creek flows. Chinese by virtue of the market gardens irrigated from that water. Where else could they garden? A sense of fresh clear cut persists. A skateboard park hovers. (VPL)

Ten years later. Little has changed but soon the gully will be filled to make way for the rapid movement of products. This area is always flooding. The stench of sewage is evident nearby on wet days. Water table high. Modern suggestively Hispanic gardens to be seen on the south-west corner of Broadway/Clark. (CVA)
