This evening I was milling about the internet doing some research and I ended up on YouTube. Somewhere between the polka version of Katy Perry’s Hot & Cold and Artem Anisimov’s sweet goal I came across the channel of the City of Vancouver Archives. The Archives have been my resource for the Before & After photo series so I thought I would take a look around. What I came across was their own film called Since Yesterday from 1962 which is broken into 4 parts for online viewing.
View Part 2, Part 3, Part 4
“From 1962, this film documents the history of various modes of transportation (boat, horse and carriage, plane, streetcar, train) in Vancouver from 1887 to 1962. Subtitled “75 years of transportation: a 75th anniversary project of the Transportation and Customs Bureau of the Vancouver Board of Trade”. Produced by Art Jones. Entire film runs 32.5 mins.”
You can check out more on their YouTube channel which also has two “City Lights” features. I’m sure Mister and Misses Vancouver would appreciate this footage today, I for one I absolutely love it.
