Date(s)

  • [between 1930 and 1950] (Creation)
    Note
    This film was produced for the Vancouver Board of Parks and Recreation by Whitefoot Studio which operated in Vancouver from 1930 to 1950. This film therefore would have been created sometime during this date range. The stock dates on the various films that were spliced together to create this item (which were 1931, 1932, 1933, 1946, 1947, 1948, 1949 and 1930 or 1950) confirm this date range as well. The Princess Elizabeth footage from her visit in October 1951 was presumably added by the Park Board after Whitefoot Studio had gone out of business.
