Old Vancouver Slides - 1 & 2

File consists of slides of images of Vancouver through the years, presumably collected and arranged (possibly by the Vancouver Public Library) for a Vancouver Centennial Commission presentation.

Included with the slides is a notebook listing captions, subject matter and date of the image for each slide. A few of the slides date from the 1950s and 1960s; however, it appears that the majority of the slides were created at the time of the presentation, and many are likely copies of images held by the City of Vancouver Archives and/or the Vancouver Public Library. Slides 50, 56 and 78 from Carousel 1 are missing.
