A remarkable photograph showing workers constructing 4th Avenue in 1909 with picks and shovels in Vancouver. The streetcar tracks that would soon be put in. back breaking work this was. This before and after shot was taken near where Waterloo Street and bike route would later cross it.
This is Andrew at my local coffee shop. He is a front line worker as far as Im concerned. I usually give him a tip as he is only 15 and makes little money. Today I gave him a generous Christmas bonus. His smile was so big he took his mask off to show me and his braces almost locked up.
Happy New Year to workers like Andrew. Please help them out!
This is John Unger and his dog Schoep. This photo captured him floating his dog to sleep in Lake Superior where they used to swim. Unfortunately the dog developed cancer and severe arthritis, and had only weeks to live. John responded by taking him to Lake Superior every night to ease the pain in his final days. Unconditional love to the end
