CVA 180-4274.3 – Yokohama Mayor I. Asukata in 1969 P.N.E. Opening Day Parade.

The “Lord Mayor” of Yokohama in 1969 is pictured here riding in what appears to be a North American car travelling on Burrard Street just north of Georgia Street. Vancouver and Yokohama seem to have been honouring the twinning of the Canadian and Japanese cities a couple of years earlier (in 1965). The 50th anniversary of this relationship is celebrated here.

*The title of this post is borrowed from the Irving Berlin song, “Sisters”, performed in the movie, White Christmas.
