Workplace memories of the YMCA

The other night, I walked by the YMCA in downtown Vancouver. Along with nearby St. Paul's Hospital and two lovely old stone churches, this structure evokes a rapidly vanishing Vancouver. 

This was my workplace in the mid 1980s. During a months long bus strike, I cycled here from East Vancouver. 

Among the rising towers around it, I can't help but wonder how much longer the old brick structure will stand.
