Some old pictures, a few shells of guitars, a couple of old letters, a couple different record sleeves and covers. I am a huge fan so it was ok to see, no big deal.

What a neat retro spot to visit in Vancouver...funky memorabilia and pictures and quotes. Entrance by donation or free so it is affordable for everyone. Great that the owner is paying tribute to such a talented, creative genius.

Playing host to some of the city's best pan-Asian
cuisine, from fusion food to traditional home-cooking,
Chinatown has remained faithful to its roots as a
space which clambers with shop signs and welcomes
