Today’s Archives Photo of the Day is from the 400 block of Homer Street. While it’s not a century-old image, I still find it rather curious and amusing.

Year: 1974
Vancouver Archives item#: CVA 778-194

    The photo looks older than the car would indicate. What a difference from our ‘glass city’ of present day!

    I think that’s a snap of an old BC Tel van! ….or maybe Hydro….but it’s definitely one of them!

    Now those are the BC Hydro utility vehicles I remember as a kid. Usually one worker on the ground and another in one of those “tents” that used to be strung over the lines. They were still using climbing belts and spikes to ascend/decend the utility pole.
