Denman Arena Pics
Here's some great pics I found on the Vancouver Archives website of the old Denman Arena in Vancouver's West End. I wrote about it last year; http://nitzyshockeyden.blogspot.com/2009/03/denman-arena-vancouver-pile.html
Above is from 1929, and below is an aerial view from 1940 showing Coal Harbour. Stanley Park is on the left side, while the arena is on the right edge.
The two pics below show the interior of the rink during militaryt drills in 1919. Note the incredibly steep upper deck seating.
