Walk east along Kingsway two blocks. Downey and Son. (1946). Of interest is the partly visible deco facade of  a building across the street. DC can be made out with time. Dads Cookies were manufactured or boxed or shipped or no doubt eaten there. The grounds of St Joseph Hospital now stand there or perhaps the faux Parisian apartment block with mansard roof. (CVA)

The meticulous shop gleams in the sunlight. Robson Park beyond. We are impressed with the abundance of full service elegance along this section and the relative scarcity of cars. (CVA)
