The corner Corner Store @ Main and 10th Ave at present and below in 1958 (CVA). Not of the dry goods variety but a corner store nonetheless. Neighborhoods throughout the city pivot on these anchors although many have fallen into disuse or suffered demolition, but even as storefront shadows these simple alcoves offer places to dwell and break up the rhythm of the street scape.

Ken's Grocer at 1400 West 70th Ave.  This corner building, and the house and garage next door are a few of the only redeemable heritage structures remaining in Marpole. (CVA)

The present business, the Gigi Blin Cafe is worthy of regular stops. The floors squeak. The coffee is honest.
