Imperial Oil Gas Station

Perhaps unaware that a year later they would receive the right to vote (except for Asian or First Nations women), these young women do jobs that had traditionally been done by men. The reason? Labour shortages during the war. The venue? The Imperial Oil gas station at Broadway and Granville in 1916.
