Rate this:
The main feature is based on the earliest known surviving film footage of Vancouver, shot in 1907 by William Harbeck from the front platform of a streetcar as it made its way through the streets of downtown and the West End. Besides the 1907 film, the DVD also includes a fullscreen version of the same route in 2007. There is also a Victoria film, shot just days before the Vancouver footage. The Victoria film shows the Francis Rattenbury-designed B.C. Parliament building, the Empress Hotel under construction, downtown streets, and views along the Gorge waterway.
