Burrard Bridge celebrates 81 years!

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.
