Scope and content

Item is a set of negatives of street photography scenes in Gastown. The identified street views begin near Maple Tree Square, at Alexander Street and Water Street, and continue west down Water Street to Cambie Street and then south to the Cambie Street and Cordova Street intersection. The photograph subjects are everyday street scenes, predominantly storefronts of local businesses and pedestrians on the sidewalk. This set contains the raw photographs from the roll the photographer shot in their original order. The associated contact sheet has selection marks for frames 2, 9, 14, and 28.
