14 Photos of Vancouver in the 70s

Comments 2 by Rebecca Bollwitt

Vancouver Whitecaps FC are celebrating 40 years of Whitecaps soccer in this city, promoting previous team members, traditions, and the beloved “White is the Colour” chant, heard best when coming from a record player. In honour of this anniversary, I have put together a collection of Vancouver photos from May-August of 1974, when the Whitecaps were just starting out.

    I loved the first pic .. it shows my old stomping grounds from when i grew up before all this was torn down .. i lived on Franklin and Triumph Streets .. along with so many other friends from the neighborhood.. was just wondering if you maybe had any more pics of that area .. ??
