CVA 1376-728 – Granville Street just north of Dunsmuir [Street] 1935 P.T. Timms photo.

There are differences that leap to my attention when I consider these two images together. A principal one is how much more clothing we Vancouverites wore 80 years ago as against today (although it must be admitted that the seasons shown are probably not identical). And how de rigeur was the practice of wearing something on one’s head – nearly all of the people in the 1935 image!

While I find the people in both images to be endlessly interesting, the architecture in the 2015 version I find less so.
