One of those faces 
out partying while 
her mom having 
heart attack in the 
hospital at least Apple 
got something right,

on your fears, she’s like 
know what I mean,

honk honk honkety 
so it’s true shittt, 
oh no oh
my wife and I have 

so my rent has 
gone up, can’t move 
on account of 
the turtle, out 
grown his tank

Along the No. 20 Line:  "This is one of the last trips we could have taken along the No. 20 line. It has existed, little changed, for exactly forty years. But next month, in July of 1949, it will be closed down and the tracks torn up. Not only the line, but the life along those streets will change, is already changing. So is mine, because next summer I'll be working on a coastal vessel. Within a decade, much of what is described here will be gone." (Rolf Knight, p.31) (Image: Vancouver Sun)

Along the No. 20 Line: "Cambie and Hastings is the informal boundary of Vancouver East's downtown. The No. 20 loops four blocks west along Hastings to the "old" post office, and back down to the C.P.R. docks and rail terminal at the waterside. She then makes her way east on Cordova back along the same route we have just taken." (p.31) (above: CVA- 1937)(below: CVA- 1944)

Along the No. 20 Line: "Let's cut across Victory square to Pender and nose through Ainsworth's or the Co-op Bookstore. And after that maybe down to the Rex Theatre for a double feature." (p.31) (CVA- 1925)
