“Tales From the West End” is an evening of story-telling where we explore and experience our community through stories about our common past.
September’s featured storyteller is heritage consultant, Donald Luxton who will intrigue us with his stories entitled “Curl up and Dye”, the Tonsorial Arts as practiced in the barber shops and beauty salons of early Vancouver. He will include stories from Maxine’s Beauty School, the current location of JJBeans”.
