Location: The Young and The Restless Clothing Exchange (formerly Oscars Art Books), 1533 W Broadway, Vancouver, BC V6J 1W6
Reason: The Printing Press museum is placed here; in the place where once was Oscars Art Books; where once were walls that held thousands of art books, that for years, I lifted out of boxes, placed onto shelves, and poured over their pages, many of which were printed on the presses pictured here in this mini-museum.
