Most Sundays I like to take my mom for a drive; she has never driven and either walks or takes the bus to most destinations. This drive took us to our old neighbourhood. Just east a few blocks my grandparents build a home. North a few blocks were two houses I lived in first when I was born, the second until I was 14. Several blocks south my mom's sister and family also had a home.
This building used to house the Canada Dry bottling plant and was the start of the bus we regularly took to go downtown shopping with mom. We used to wait for the bus and watch the bottles fill through the window. Then it was sold and became Purdy's Chocolates.
Purdy's is a Vancouver based business that was started in 1907 and has expanded into Alberta and Ontario. It has been voted top 50 Best Employers several times and the same family has owned it since 1963. The current CEO Karen Flavelle has twice been voted into the top 100 Most Powerful Women in Canada!
