 This is another really low altitude shot of housing in the Kitsilano area of Vancouver from 1948. The intersection on the left is the corner of Cornwall Avenue and Yew Street just south of Kitsilano Beach Park. There are several people in windows and on the street watching the plane fly past.

62-10 : Kamloops Flats

 This image was titled “Kamloops Flats Indian Reserve”. It was taken May 16, 1962. After doing a bit of research I’m having a hard time confirming if this really was an Indian Reserve. Any information would be appreciated.

BO-47-1453 : Work Point Barracks, Esquimalt

 These are the Work Point Barracks in Esquimalt, just outside Victoria, from 1947. Unfortunately the image is not the sharpest, but you get a great view of the Canadian Forces Base along with Imperial Oil and Esquimalt Harbour way off in the distance.
