Helen's Greeting Card


Description & Details

Helen's Children's Wear. Situated up East Hastings Street on the lofty Heights of North Burnaby. The glint in the eye of the 1948 paper maché stork in Helen Arnold's first children's store window is a foretelling of the wonderful magical 1956 arrival of Helen: the sweetheart birth child of Vancouver's neon family. She is a kinetic girl that rocks back and forth on her neon swing created with the new store, in the former Municipal Hall up the street.

Laughing Hand

Keith McKellar, born in New Westminster in 1947, migrated to the bush town of Prince George with his family in 1952. The boom and bust fifties and sixties of Prince George gave him a keen eye and open heart for the characters of the logging towns, construction camps and the bush-shack families. He worked at sixty-five different jobs in several fields, before becoming the professional artist Laughing Hand. He composes live, on location, portrait caricature of Vancouver's vintage Cafes and Theatres.
