East Vancouver's bold iconic cross proudly stands along Clark Drive - the street where I spent growing up for most of my childhood. 


After taking the photograph of the East Van cross a plethora of happy, and not so happy memories struck me about my time growing up in East Vancouver, a neighbourhood once known for being the "wrong side" of the track.


East Van is home to me. It is where I was born as was my father, grandmother and great grandmother, and I am sure East Van is home to many of you as well.
