As a new year dawns, “Vancouver needs more taxi licenses”…”Good cheer & hopes of 1913, a century later, ring true to this day”…
“A celebratory dinner at a swanky dining room could be had for 50 cents. Post-Christmas sales featured steep discounts, just as today. “Rust-proof” corsets for figures ranging from slight to stout, all nicely trimmed with lace, low busts and long hips were on sale for $1.50. Wool lingerie was $1.25. Gentlemen’s suits were knocked down to $18. Opera and evening gowns, regular price $40, were discounted to $10.”
