Jimi Hendrix Shrine Vancouver

Jimi Hendrix shrine; corner of Main and Union Street, Chinatown Vancouver.

I came across this during my overnight stay in Vancouver last week on my way to Revelstoke. I had the thought to Google this, and was surprised to learn it had been a small restaurant owned by Jimi’s grandmother Norah Hendrix. A young Jimi Hendrix spent summers in Vancouver, and lived in a house near by - read the whole article here.

I’ve officially been somewhere amazing, didn’t even know it. I’m glad I went back to get my camera.
