the first building constructed in the area was a roller rink
The Great Skate! I remember a few childhood birthday parties there.

I remember when there were automated Christmas displays in the street front windows of Simpson's, on the opposite corner of 12th and Hamilton.
I remember when Northgate Mall had the coolest Centre Court Christmas display, consisting of Santa's Workshop, a lot of fake snow, and animatronic elves busy with various tasks. Later it was all replaced with animatronic bears, which wasn't bad... but today's displays pale in comparison.
