Youth experience   Leave a comment

As a youth I had a couple of interesting job experiences. For example as a pin-setter in a Kingsway Street bowling alley, becoming quite proficient setting two alleys at a time for 10 pins league players. It was a dangerous challenge to avoid getting hit by flying pins while located between alleys, but it paid quite well!

Next I applied for a job in a downtown Vancouver Motel, it was one of the last, if not the very last Motel in downtown Vancouver appropriately named the ‘Downtowner’. I was able to commute from East Van via my first car, a 1927 coupe.

The managers were two men, one of whom was gay. I came after school and swept the floor of the parking area, refilled the pop machine, and adjusted tv’s etc. among other chores.

It was educational to say the least, including prostitutes. Sometimes I obtained liquor from (gay patrons) of the Vancouver Hotel bar for motel patrons.. just a few of my youthful experiences…
