Vancouver History: Before and After Part Six

Comments 3 by Rebecca Bollwitt

This is now the sixth week of my Before and After photo series. I was a bit stumped this morning when trying to think of a theme so I just started typing random search words into the City Archives photo database.

What I ended up with was a small collection of points of interest and touristy landmarks throughout the City (and on the North Shore). Enjoy!…

    Amazing photos! You’re like a little investigator digging through the archives 🙂 Check out the “Then & Now” post on Capilano Suspension Bridge that was inspired by you.

    What, no photos of the Hallow tree as it stands today? I still think they shouldn’t have wasted the money by trying to put it upright. It’s more metal than wood now. *le sigh*
