Downtown and West End buildings inventory photographs

Series consists of images which systematically and comprehensively document the whole of Vancouver's central commercial area, along the waterfront from Cardero to Carrall, narrowing southward to False Creek (Thurlow to Richards at the southernmost point). Photographed in August 1981 (as an internship or work experience project) to provide a reference resource in the preparation for the Vancouver Coreplan. Images are generally 45 degree views of buildings, often from block corners. Arranged in a devised image block numbering scheme (individual image numbers reflect that organization).

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. The slides suggest that the presentation was given by Robert D'altroy. Slides were originally arranged in two carousels. 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.
