Welcome to the Vancouver Lexicon. Its purpose is to pin down the patois of the City of Vancouver by recording its toponyms, nicknames, slang terms, personalities, places, and other Van-centric things. Full A-Z here.
Record Row | history | The 500 block of Seymour Street. In the 1980s and early 90s it was packed with record stores, among them Track Records, Sam the Record Man, A&B Sound, Odyssey Imports, A&A, and Collector’s RPM. Sadly, not a single record store remains on Record Row today.
Usage: “I miss going down to Record Row on a Saturday afternoon and blowing my cash tips on a shit tonne of vinyl.”
