This blog features before and after photographs, mostly from the Vancouver Archives, BC Archives and Vancouver Public Library collections. The older images are all in the public domain. It’s a companion blog to the Changing City blog which tracks contemporary development projects in Vancouver BC. We also blog at What Was There Before, that looks at before and after of recent buildings, and buildingvancouver a blog that looks at who built some of the heritage buildings that are still standing in the city.
We generally try to post a couple of images each week, and anticipate that will continue in future. Because of the volume of spam blogs can generate, and the nature of the blog, we’re not intending to add a comment opportunity, except here. If you want to point out any errors or suggest additions we’ll contact you if we can incorporate your material, and we always acknowledge your help in the post.
We are very happy to try to use any historic family pictures that you have of Vancouver that you’d like to see here. Obviously we’ll acknowledge the source of the original images.
