Photographer's Note

Running the length of the downtown core is Vancouvers famous Robson Street.

Robson Street was named after John Robson, the Premier of British Colombia between 1889 and 1892. When railway tracks were laid adjacent to the street in 1895, shops of every variety began to emerge.

In the post World War II era, Robson Street evolved into 'Robsonstrasse', a reflection of the European shopkeepers who operated the many small delicatessens, patisseries, and chic boutiques that populated the street.

In modern times, as its popularity has soared, the character of Robson Street has continued to evolve. 'Robsonstrasse' has passed into history, but the eclectic mix of shops and restaurants has become even stronger and more appealing.

Always bustling and full of activity; Robson St. plays host to shopping, hotels and restaurants with numerous coffee shops and patios on which to people watch and enjoy the sun with friends.

This photo is taken from my hotel room on the 39th floor of the Landmark Hotel on Robson.
