No wonder you have such different cognative images of Vancouver, it would be hard not to, Vancouver must have been a very different place to you growing up than it was to me.

!! Oh no .... I've finally given my age bracket away .... but yes. Vancouver during my very early years was just a "large small town" with a few biggish buildings in it (Hotel Van, Marine Bldg, etc)

It wasn't until I was three years old and went to San Francisco with my mom that I noticed a difference. Of course I could not articulate it, but the much larger, busier urban environment of SF was something I perceived somehow, even at that age.
