Happy Birthday Vancouver!
Today marks the 124th birthday of our amazing city and I’ve been inspired by some fantastic blogs, (Miss604, and South Granville) to post some before and after pictures of my favourite area: Robson Street!
The idea of before and after pics is not original, (check out Vancouver: Then and Now), but I haven’t really seen many of Robson Street around. So today, exactly 124 years after we became incorporated, I took to the street with just my camera and tried to match some pictures from the archives. Take a look at these and enjoy!
