Throwback video shows how Vancouver changed from the 1930s to the 1990s

Take a look at what Vancouver used to look like in this photographic comparison video

Nineties nostalgia is real, but things get really intense when you double down and throw it back to the 1930s in a photographic then and now comparison.

Cross the Burrard Inlet on a paddlewheeler…or a funky 90s SeaBus. Cross the Burrard Bridge by car then…and now, then journey on across the Granville Bridge in both decades. Anything look familiar?

The 1930s footage was shot by Sidney Groberman, and the video produced in 1993 for the Knowledge Network. A lot changes in 80 years, and in 25 years, too!
