On a whim I’ve decided to start up a new series called, Archives Photo of the Day. I considered posting this to Twitter only until I realized that the links generated by my search queries end up expiring after a few minutes. With people heading on vacation (including us) next month I’m keen on posting smaller pieces that take a bit less time to write — as opposed to the big history series or the then and now series. Without further ado, here’s is my “Vancouver Archives Photo of the Day” for June 28th, 2010.
Description: Man driving a 3-wheeler in front of the Orpheum Theatre, 1948
