During the Games, I posted photos of downtown Vancouver from the Vancouver Lookout observation deck.
And then, in the comments, Dave2 posted a picture of downtown Vancouver in 1981: a very similar shot to one of mine, but how things have changed! Have a look: my photo is above and Dave’s is below.
Here’s what Dave added later in the comments too, after I remarked on how amazing the differences were:
Jhenifer, ain’t that the truth! Even by 1985 that view had totally changed, with all of the rail yards and the associated buildings cleared out, the opening of the Expo Preview Centre (now Science World) and the construction of Skytrain … And now, you can’t even _see_ Science World with all the highrises.
