I never would have thought Vancouver use to have squater camps.

^Doesn't look too vintage to me.

It's amazing in terms of height, how little Vancouver's skyline has changed in over a third of century from that first picture. It wasn't until Shangri-La got built that things finally started to change.

Th Shangri-la makes all the difference. vancouver's skyline would be 'average' without it.

those three towers that look the same left of centre - one of them was demolished several years ago and the other two, which were a hotel, are now being converted to residential

I think I have a few more, but have to find them first lol.
Can any-one tell me if there's a thread on this forum with vintage/old pics of Vancouver? If there is where would I find it?
