Looking out across English Bay the horizone is spotted with kayaks, sailboats, cruise ships and tankers. This has been the view, albeit with very different vessels, throughout most of Vancouver’s history. Thanks to the City of Vancouver Archives, along with photographers today who share their works online, we can see “then and now” views of our landscapes over 100 years apart.
