Series consists of images (slides) taken in support of Engineering Department work performed in the 1970s and 1980s. Major projects undertaken in this time that are documented in this series include the construction of the Expo Line (Skytrain), the construction and opening of the 1985 Cambie Street Bridge, the cleanup of the shoreline around False Creek and building of the Seawall, and the conversion of Granville Mall to pedestrian use.
Other images in this series show work at the Vancouver Landfill in Burns Bog (Delta, BC), construction and maintenance of streets, sidewalks, sewers, waterworks, lighting, and parks throughout the city, and Engineering equipment and facilities.
Individual image titles are taken from the database used by the Engineering department to organize and catalogue the images. The titles tend to relate to projects and activities, and are not always reflective of the content of the images. 991 images were not identified in this database and are currently untitled. Images in this series were taken by City employee Alan (Al) Ingram.
Series also includes one subseries of textual records (subseries 1 - Supplementary paperwork) used to organize the images.
