Thursdays Pic:  Of McAllister Avenue before the current Outlet building housing the PoCo Museum, the former post office, was built. It’s a brief article from the Coquitlam Herald in 1959, talking about the site of the new post office, and shows the tidy little house that used to sit where we sit now! You can barely see City Hall on the right side. More at PoCo Heritage.
