Dark and probably empty

December 5th, 2017 — A few days ago in the Vancouver Sun, Gil Kelly, Vancouver’s general manager of planning, was quoted as saying the following; “In fact, we’ve actually been creating a large supply of housing … it’s just that supply has been targeted at the high-end and for investors, and leaving out many of the folks that live here in Vancouver and want to work and raise families”. Possibly that’s why so many of the apartments in these condominiums in the area of Richards Street and Beach Crescent have no lights on and seem to be empty at half past eight on a Tuesday night.

Chuck Parsons

July 27th, 1969 — Chuck Parsons watches mechanics working on his Lola T163 in the garage area behind the pits during practice for the Klondike 200 Can-Am car race at Edmonton International Speedway. Parsons didn’t start racing until he was 30 and was another of those drivers who had well prepared cars for the Can-Am series but limited success although usually finishing in the points. As an endurance driver he won the Daytona 24 hours co-driving with Mark Donohue in a Penske Racing Lola T70 coupe.

Lothar Motschenbacher

August 1st, 1971 — Lothar Motschenbacher with his mechanic checking over his Formula 5000 Mclaren at Edmonton International Speedway during practice. Motschenbacher raced Can-Am sports cars and open wheels, always had a quick car, but I don’t think he ever won a race.

Turn two crash

August 1st, 1971 — A first lap crash exiting turn two during a Formula B car race at Edmonton International Speedway. Six cars out of the race almost before it started. In the last two pictures the horseback riders were from the farm next to the track.
