Vancouver History: Before and After Photos Part Four

Comments 4 by Rebecca Bollwitt

This is now the fourth week of my Vancouver then and now photo series thanks to the resources available at the City of Vancouver Archives. To celebrate what’s left of summer in the city alongside the launch of the Great Canadian Shoreline Cleanup, the theme this week is beaches.
