Our History in Pictures

A look at a mid-1970s street sale on 30th Avenue

It wasn’t exactly the Downtown Vernon Association’s Sunshine Festival. Nope, but in 1975, Eaton’s hosted a street sale outside its doors at 3400-3oth Avenue.

Today, Eaton’s is long gone but the building remains, occupied by Bookland, Nature’s Fare and the Okanagan Valley College of Massage Therapy.
