    This was a very lively section of Wylie and the Hill District back in the 40s. All cleared for the old Civic Arena in th 60s. Now just all cleared for parking lots. Prime real estate, development plans unknown.

    I lived a couple blocks from this corner - Wylie at Chatham St. Chatham was just two blocks out from 6th Ave. Enlarge the photo and see the Chinese Laundry owned by the family of a good friend and classmate. They lived above it. So many households and businesses were forced to move in the late 50s. ------(The map you see on this page doesn't show the way things were. For example , Centre did not go into this part of the Hill. It didn't go below where Crawford is now.)
