While I was an engineering student at UBC I had a business as a nightclub photogapher in Chinatown, Vancouver BC. One of my haunts was the WK Gardens Restaurant, and one night Lois Armstrong came in with a group of friends after playing the Cave Supper Club. He was very nice about letting me take these pictures.
I don't know the names of the others in the pictures . . . .but I would love to find out if you know anyone here, so I can add them to captions. Taken early 1960's.
