I noticed that too. Neat.

I think I will take a walk down there tomorrow afternoon, anyone interested?

I used to be with it, but then they changed what it was. Now what I'm with isn't it, and what's it seems weird and scary to me, and it'll happen to you, too!

Theres really not much else to see (aside from the regular neighbourhood misery)that photo pretty much sums it up - old signage, kind of cool.

yup.I walked around down there the other day....it was open,looked like they were getting it ready for sale of a movie shoot....nothing in it at all.one big empty room.
I'm going to try and get a tour of the old BC electric building on the corner of Carall and hastings,most recently an art gallery.Apparently,the bottom floor is still intact,and left as it was when the streetcars stopped running years ago.

I've been in. The bottom floor (ground floor) has been made into a lobby of sorts and I think it has a little cafeteria or coffee shop. The rest of the space is occupied by the art gallery. The upper floors are all rented out to different offices.

I never got a look at the basement, though.
