In a city where the skyline changes annually, it’s always fascinating to look back ten to one hundred years to see how it has evolved. Last week I had the opportunity to fly around the region with News1130’s Kim Seale and I had my cameras firing every few seconds as I tried to capture the sights. In the spirit of my old “Then and Now” series, I actually found some of my latest aerial photos could be matched up with a few from the Vancouver Public Library Archives and the City of Vancouver Archives:

    If you like aerial photographs, you can view part of a private collection right now at http://vintageairphotos.com

    Mostly from the 1940’s and 1950’s. There’s also a nice feature to be able to zoom in to the images.
