55-51 : Coal Harbour Shipping

Mark

 

This is Coal Harbour in Vancouver from 1955. A cool view of the shipping and rail activity going on in the area. The only tall building in the area is the Marine Building on Burrard Street.

    Do you see the sign on Burrard – that would have been visible to any northbound cars – it says “FERRIES” and then 2nd line “Canadian Pacific” in the famous old script-style font.

    Also the entrance to the skytrain tunnel – entirely visible.

    Are those oil/fuel tanks right over the harbour – hard to imagine today.

    and no Westin Bayshore.
