Photo: What year and street is this in Richmond?

No Googling now, but the cars and signage might be a clue
Did you guess right? It was Westminster Highway, looking east from Minoru Boulevard towards No. 3 Road, in 1975

Did you manage the guess the year, or even the decade, this photo was taken?

If you said the ‘70s you would be absolutely correct and, if you said 1975, give yourself a pat on the back.

It’s a shot of Westminster Highway, looking east, from Minoru Boulevard, towards No. 3 Road,  and shows the old Safeway store, where there is the wonder of “free parking” and an “in-store bakery.”

Also visible is the former Volkswagen dealership and Shell gas station, as well as Associated Tire Centres.
