PNE Centennial Jamboree 1966

PNE Programme

Yeah, O.K. — so maybe we missed the boat on this one by a couple of weeks — Actually meant to post this while the P.N.E. was still on, but only found the darned thing this morning. I guess the old filing system could do with some fine-tuning…

Check out the Teenage Dance Party page: Night Train Revue, The Shantelles, The Centaurs, The Nocturnals and The Guess Who. Way cooler than the bands they have nowadays (in my humble opinion, anyways)

— and Barbara Woodcock with her troupe of elephants will delight youngsters of all ages!

One thing that confuses me is why would they call it the “Centennial Jamboree”? – as far as I know, Canada’s centennial was in ’67, was it not?

Old Steveston Lives On!

The Gulf of Georgia Cannery, located in the fishing village of Steveston British Columbia, was built in 1894. For many years it was the largest and perhaps the busiest cannery on the Steveston waterfront, packing more than 2.5 million cans of salmon in 1897. That’s a lot o fish.

The cannery ceased operations in the late 1970s, but by then, the site had fallen into disrepair. (I took these photos around 1980 or so with an old polaroid – pretty scary-lookin’).

Luckily, the Federal Gov’t stepped up and purchased the property in 1979, and it’s now a National Historic Site and museum. If you’re in the area, check it out! – More info here
