Happy Canada Day! Vancouver’s art deco style Burrard Bridge opened on Canada Day (or Dominion Day, as it was known then) July 1, 1932.
The History of Metropolitan Vancouver has a great history of the Burrard Bridge, you can find here.
Amateur film maker Sid Groberman shot this fantastic film while he was driving over the Burrard Bridge a few years after it was built. What is even more impressive is that he stops mid span and continues filming – a move not recommended today. There is a bonus at the end of the film where he visits Vancouver’s English Bay. All in all, a great way to celebrate Canada Day. Enjoy.
