Yesterday I asked the followers of my Facebook page what the theme of the next Archives Photos of the Day post should be. I had some great suggestions and decided to go with Robert White’s idea of street fashions. While the images were not categorized under a “fashion” tag, I did a little digging and pulled out some street scenes that do the trick.

  1. I love that you found Philip Timm’s 1900’s Granville – He’s one of my favourite early Vancouver photographers, and that’s one of my favouite shots! ๐Ÿ™‚ The Jack Lindsay 1940’s Georgia is pretty amazing too, showing both Hotel Vancouvers (Hotels Vancouver? Help me out, English majors!), the Birks clock, and those beautiful awnings on The Bay building… and all those smart hats and coats. What a beautiful time for the city ๐Ÿ™‚
