I-63128 – Crowds out for an event; possibly at English Bay. ca1895. Royal BC Archives. Photographer unknown.

This scene is most likely the beach on English Bay, ca 1895. The ladies and gents who appear here are dressed ‘to the nines‘! The image, from the Royal BC Archives, seems to suffer from double exposure, but remains a good example of Victorian beachwear in Vancouver.
