This is a really low altitude shot of some apartments in Vancouver from 1948. The intersection is the corner of Cornwall Avenue and Vine Street just south of Kitsilano Beach Park. Surprisingly, the area still looks pretty similar.
This is a somewhat higher altitude shot of the Pacific Coast Terminals in New Westminster from 1946. The terminals handled the import of general cargo such as apples, wood and refrigerated food.
