You gotta' be old like me (and you) to remember a gravel Ruby Road (now Mckenzie) running through dozens of acres of farmland and forest!
I walked to school every day (Gordon Head Elementary on Kenmore) through an endless series of paths on farmers fields, with nary a sidewalk or roadway as part of my journey.
When people in 2018 ask me if I was born here, I always say "yes, I grew up on a farm on Feltham Road" ... which always gets a puzzled look, with folks not able to imagine what the photo above clearly lays out ... a Gordon Head full of farmers fields, forests, and green houses ... with the occasional house in between (unless you were in the Cedarglen or San Juan subdivisions, a couple of the first in town ... great for trick or treating for a Feltham Road farm boy!).
Yup! Although we were further to the south of you, on Cedar Hill Road almost directly across from the junior high school; our house would be just out of frame of this image along Cedar Hill and the very north west corner of the picture. We lived there from 1964-72.
But yeah I well recall the area pre-mall, pre-McKenzie Avenue, when Cedar Hill to the north of Ruby/McKenzie became a full on gravel road a couple of hundred meters beyond that intersection, and when Shelbourne was a 2 lane goat trail lined with green houses, even more than this 1974 picture indicates. A bike ride from our house to Mt Doug park and beach was considered an all-day adventure and required a backpack lunch, lol.....
