When I first walked into New District, on Vancouver’s west side (5650 Dunbar St. at W 41st. Ave.), it took me right back to London. At the time, I was working for my uncle in St. James, home to some pretty illustrious neighbours. Lunch (Baxter’s then quite exotic soup) came from Fortnum & Mason, known as just ‘Fortnum’s’. Paxton & Whitfield (Paxton’s) yielded perfectly ripened Brie. The Ritz was just around the corner and the original Quaglino’s was right up the street.
Our gallery shared a sidewalk loading bay with of Berry Brothers & Rudd, whose original store was nearby. The lift went down to space that joined our basements. Lots of things went back and forth. BBR supplied the pre-prandial Sherry, the pre ’40 winks’ Port, and everything in between. Sadly, the little shop is no more. But those memories are indelible.
