BO-48-3047 : Old Shaughnessy Golf Course

 This is the Shaughnessy area of Vancouver from 1948. Old Shaughnessy Golf Course is now the site of the VanDusen Botanical Garden. There’s an interesting “camp” at the top of the image that looks like a military base. I count approximately 80 buses in the parking lot. If anyone has any information about this, please…
