Monogatari Tales of Powell Street (1920-1941)
Exhibit May 28 – October 1, 2011

Powell Street was the pre-war business centre of the Japanese community in Vancouver. The vibrant street was filled with busy vegetable and fish markets, taxis, bustling cafés, boarding houses, traditional bath houses and special Japanese food stores. Regular baseball games were played by the Asahi ball team in Oppenheimer Park. We invite you to discover the many monogatari of Powell Street.
