Vancouver and history are not antonyms. While Vancouver appears young and metropolitan, its heritage spreads to the corners of the city. Our stories are tucked away in Vancouver’s historic tunnels and in what remains of Hogan’s Alley. We have much to say of kinship, athleticism, and competition as we study the Asahi Baseball Team. Beyond the seemingly omnipresent sound of rain, the venues and streets have echoed with sounds of rock and roll and rollercoasters. In every issue of MONTECRISTO, with insightful, thoughtful retrospective stories, we reveal that perhaps some of our city’s finest moments are behind us.
