Sad day today for all of New Westminster with the loss of the Copp’s Shoes building and neighbouring businesses.

Drawings by Urban Sketcher, Won Kang; note the G&M actually featured his colour drawing in their gallery of images. Perhaps the canvas tote idea will still be made available, in memory of the great legacy that was Copp’s Shoes.

Marine Market by Won Kang, the Urban Sketcher. This is a bit like Guess Where Vancouver; who here can identify the location?!
UPDATE! Congrats to alldelightedpeople, who has identified this location as Marine Drive and Gilley Ave! That’s actually Burnaby, to be precise! Oh, and for the record, this has been my 750th post! Only 250 more to go!
