    It’s so sad to see that all the rails are taken out of the streets. A city with great public transit is so much fun to live in.

    What about West Vancouver when they used to have the ferry, have any photos from that era? Still enjoying seeing all these before and afters

    I wish there the tracks were still there and still being used.

    I really like the way 1959 Granville/Robson Street looked. I think it looked better than the current picture.

    Thanks for the pics!

    I really miss the Capitol 6 movie theatre. It was really unique, and I had a lot of great memories there of watching movies with Brennen back in the day.
