To enter the contest, take a photo of a place in North Vancouver with historical significance and upload it to your own Flickr account. Then join the North Shore History group on Flickr and go back to your photo, click “Actions” then “Add to Group”. It’s free to sign up for a Flickr account if you do not already have one and Flickr offers various levels of privacy and licensing settings on your images.

This is the second Flickr photo contest from the North Vancouver Museum and Archives. The first was a “Then and Now” competition that juxtaposed old photos of landmarks with new.

    That’s so perfectly aligned that at first I thought it was some sort of building wrap.

    This raises an interesting idea: Perhaps take the best entry that features a building, and see if the owners would be interested in a partial building wrap. Of course I’m sure those things don’t come cheap, so would depend on who owns the building (a larger company probably has more money to spare for these sorts of things) and whether various partners (Heritage BC, North Vancouver Museum and Archives, etc.) could contribute funding.
