Sunrise Market Greeting Card

$6.00

Description & Details

Powell and Gore: this distinctive corner is perhaps the epitome of the true Vancouver experience. Boxes and crates of the freshest produce lining the sidewalks first appeared here in 1963. Founder Leslie Joe established his Sunrise Market surrounding a small tofu factory in the backroom. This market echoes the open air tent stalls of the lost era of the Japanese Powell Street community farmer's day market thriving in the '20s, '30s, and early '40s stretching from Powell along Main to Pender.

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.
