Nora Hendrix: "Down in the 200 and 300 block Prior and Union and Keefer is where most all these chicken places were. Mrs. Pryor had a eating place on Keefer and then there was a Mrs. Alexander had one on Union Street and there was Mr. Soldier Williams, he had one that used to be a funeral parlour. Well, there used to be different fellows around down on Prior Street and Keefer Street that had little clubhouses and things like that, years back in the Twenties and Thirties." (Opening Doors, 61)

It is wonderful that the Hogan's Alley Memorial Project has come about. It makes visible the invisible history of Black people in Vancouver. I am happy to hear Nora Hendrix's voice. Keep up the great work!
