This work was produced in 1973 by walking down Hastings Street and taking photos every ten feet or so. The advent of Photoshop years later allowed Eriksen to stitch the images together into a continuous streetscape. He produced this as an edition of 20 in 2003 for the Presentation House Gallery, for a fundraiser to coincide with the exhibition "Unfinished Business: Vancouver Street Photographers 1955 to 1985", which included the artist's work.
Eriksen studied at the Vancouver School of Art from 1969 to 1973.
