The Ministry of Transportation’s BC Roadtrip Time Machine just released a video showing a drive from Horseshoe Bay, over the Lion’s Gate to Vancouver then off to Burnaby on Kingsway all the way back in 1966.
This is what the Ministry says about the video: Hey Vancouver! Get ready for a ride down memory lane because our BC Road Trip Time Machine is heading your way. Our archival photolog footage rolls its way from Horseshoe Bay, through West Vancouver, over the Lions Gate Bridge, into downtown Vancouver – along Georgia Street, up Main and out Kingsway, giving you a glimpse of Vancouver as it was in 1966. (It’s safe to say we’ve come a long way from the fledgling port town that we were).
It’s an incredible video, mostly because there is so much street parking. Amazing.
