Over 101 years later and the earliest movie footage of Vancouver is still making the rounds. Now available on DVD, City Reflections 1907 – 2007 will also be screened December 12th at the Vancouver Public Library.
Time: 7:00pm to 9:00pm
Where: Alice Mackay Room, Lower Level (Central Library Branch, 350 W Georgia)
“The film is the earliest footage of Vancouver and was shot with a hand-crank camera mounted on the front of a B.C. Electric Railway streetcar by William Harbeck of Seattle.” [Miss604]
This is a free event and is bound to be full of interesting tidbits about Vancouver’s history as a city, as well discussions about how transportation has evolved around here.
