Vancouver 125th anniversary

A couple of days ago the city of Vancouver, British Columbia turned 125 years old. The photo above is dated the 5th of January 1979. I took the photo during a 2 and a half week stay in the city in late 1978 and early 1979. Note the smog in the air! Well, the air has cleared a lot since the last time I was in the city after returning here to stay in early 2006. The many pulp and paper mills are gone (and with them the jobs) which accounts for the air being clearer this time around. I'll have more photos later. Have an awesome day! - V
