Vancouver History: Before and After Photos Part Fiveby
Last week I didn’t realize how long I had been running the “then and now” photo series so we had Part Three, twice. I’m back on track this week and I’ve decided to feature transit and bus transport.
With everyone heading back to school and with commuting options changing, let’s take a look back at what Vancouver bus travel looked like when the city was young.
Robson Streetcar, 1900-1902
Robson Bus, 2008
Cambie Bus, 1948
Cambie Bus, 2008
Double Decker Bus
If you have any theme suggestions for next week, please leave a comment on this post. All black and white photos are from the City of Vancouver Archives.

Ooh – very cool!
I will post a link to this.
Thanks, RB. Aaah, the memories of too many hours spent on Brill trolleys between Chinatown and downtown …
The old picture labelled “double decker bus” is not taken in Vancouver, of course, but in the suburbs of London, England. It is probably a lot earlier than 1938 since buses like this served on the front lines during World War I, and would have been long taken out of service by then.
The 1900 Robson conveyance is also not a bus but a streetcar.
But still an interesting collection

Wow, miss604! It’s so interesting to see how much Vancouver has changed since the 1900’s. What a contrast!
don’t know why, but the “then” photos aren’t loading for me.
