SPQR by Mary Beard

December 19th, 2017 — If you want to know about ancient Rome you can’t beat Mary Beard’s book SPQR shown here with all the important parts marked by stickies inserted by Carol for her masters course at SFU. Mary Beard, by the way, thinks this is “a neat pic!”.

Strippers and the mayor

Dec 20th, 1974 — On the left is the mayor of Port Coquitlam, Jack Campbell, possibly with some aldermen who are all watching strippers at the Wild Duck Inn. This was a “photo op” organized by the mayor’s office as they were supposedly on official city business to see if having live entertainment, a stripper, violated their business licence to operate a pub. The photographer in the background of the picture below is Ian Lindsay of the Vancouver Sun.
