While checking our site statistics on our main blog this morning, we noticed that Chuck Davis linked to us. Thanks, Chuck!
Chuck Davis, the Vancouver historian and writer of The Vancouver Book and The Greater Vancouver Book, gave a Port Moody Station Museum-sponsored talk at last year’s Port Moody Arts Fesitval. He recently added 1978 to his Greater Vancouver timeline and there we are, along with the Exhibit Assistant’s photo of the pretty Model A’s lined up in front of the Station.
One of the first things we noticed at the top of the 1978 timeline was that the leader of the Ink Spots, Bill Kenny, died here in Vancouver on March 23 of that year. The Ink Spots is a favourite band of the staff here at the Museum. We never knew we had such a connection with the band.
