Curious about the history of Burnaby's Brentwood Town Centre?
The Burnaby Historical Society is hosting David Pereira for a talk on the bygone days of the local mall.
According to the society, Eaton's was Brentwood's early anchor tenant, and Jack Cullen would broadcast a CKNW music show from his store, where he sold records. These are just a couple of the interesting historical anecdotes tied to Brentwood Town Centre.
The event is on Wednesday, April 10, at 7: 30 p.m. at the Burnaby Village Museum.
Pereira's talk is open to the general public, and admission is free. The museum is 6501 Deer Lake Ave., and the event will be in the carousel building.
Pereira is an amateur local historian who did his master's degree in urban studies at Simon Fraser University, with a focus on town centre planning in Burnaby.
Membership for the Burnaby Historical Society is $15 a year. For more information on how to join, call the Burnaby Village Museum at 604-297-4565. For more local history from Pereira, visit his blog at davidpereira.ca.
