Scope and content
Item is a videocassette containing five clips from CBC news on the subject of the Vancouver Centennial celebrations.
The first clip depicts a ribbon cutting ceremony for Castle Vancouver, a replica of Coevorden Castle, Captain George Vancouver’s ancestral home. This was a donation from the Netherlands and was attended by Dutch dignitaries; a discussion of the massive birthday cake prepared for the centennial celebrations, including footage of the cake and it’s preparation, and an interview with the baker; and revealing the new welcome sign for the city.
The second clip is a montage of still photographs and motion picture footage illustrating major events in the history of the city of Vancouver. The third clip is about the arrival of Governor General Jeanne Sauvé for the centennial celebrations. She is introduced by Mayor Michael Harcourt, and gives a short speech.
The fourth clip is about the centennial celebrations themselves, and includes footage of bands, parades, the concert at Brockton Point, and families enjoying the day. The clip presents a variety of people from the celebrations wishing Vancouver ‘Happy Birthday’ for the camera. The clip finishes with scenes from the cake cutting ceremony with Governor General Sauvé and Mayor Harcourt, as well as Sauvé turning on the water for the restored Jubilee Fountain.
The fifth clip is the visit of Mayor Harcourt, his family, and [Leora Apsoruis] (the Vancouver Jubilee baby, born on April 6, 1936) to the hospital room of the centennial baby.
