YK Past Blast: Franklin Ave.

Yellowknifers still like their July 1 parades, but they lack the intimacy of what they did 40 years ago. Looking down Franklin Avenue, (from today’s Northern United Place) note The Bay store on the right, the Capital Theatre, the original Yellowknife Public School, and the newly-built Laing Building. The front float celebrates the Hudson’s Bay Company’s 300th birthday, while behind it, the Bromley and Sons hardware store (today’s Diavik mine office) entry says: “Don’t Paddle Your Canoe Let Bromley’s Help You.”
