This very cool piece of film sat in an attic in Australia for over 100 years, and was discovered just a few years ago and restored. It's a film of everyday Vancouver life in 1907, filmed from a trolley car by a filmmaker who died five years later as he filmed the maiden voyage of the Titanic.
The film starts at Georgia Street looking north down Granville, then follows Granville,turns right on Hastings and follows along Hastings. It skips a bit but turns left to go up Main St. Hope you enjoy the film.
