Granville Street in 1960. Beginning in the late 50s, anti-neon activists argued that Vancouver's "neon jungle" distracted from the city's natural beauty. But Dal Richards remembers it differently: "We might have been a neon jungle, but [it] was a very artistic jungle, I would say." Ken Oakes photo, Vancouver Sun
