It was on this day, February 19, 1986, when the Lions Gate Bridge was illuminated for the first time, a gift from the Guinness family that initially had the bridge built. In honor of this, I have picked out some photos from the Miss604 Flickr Pool.
The 100-watt mercury-vapour bulbs, all 170 of them, were replaced in 2009 with high-efficiency LED lighting. This change cut the power consumption by 90% and now saves the province more than $30,000 a year in energy and maintenance.
As always, please click through on these images to view more work from the photographers and feel free to share your own photos with the Miss604 Flickr Pool.
