Lorne Findlay spent several years working in a lively service station in Fairview. His work brought him into contact with several future Vancouver celebrities including Jimmy Pattison and Jack Webster. He also met Frank Baker, a Vancouver alderman, collector and notable restaurateur. Baker is perhaps best known for The Attic, a West Vancouver landmark open from 1968 - 1989. Lorne takes pride in getting Frank one of his first catering jobs. Part of the South Vancouver Neighbourhood House program Inside Stories.
