Marine Reflections 75

Marine75

These reflections of the Marine Building were made about 75 years apart in a city that  is greatly changed in many ways. There is some comfort, though, in seeing that the building’s exterior is essentially identical.

The view on the left is from the City of Vancouver Archives and was made by photographer James Crookall in a puddle adjacent to the rail tracks near where the northwestern portal of the Dunsmuir Tunnel was located. The view on the right was made by the author in the glass ceiling of the lower level of the Vancouver Convention Centre.
