Vintage Vancouver transit ads from 1958

Vintage Vancouver transit ads from 1958

Vancouver transit ads from 1958, found at the Vancouver Archives. (Item #CVA387-4, photographed by Graphic Industries Ltd for B.C. Electric.)

I recently visited the delightful City of Vancouver Archives and with the help of the wonderful research staff, I looked through some vintage B.C. Electric pamphlets and photographs that aren’t available through their online catalogue (or at least as far as I know). I thought you’d enjoy seeing these classic ads I found—well, the ad may be classic, but the message isn’t! Aren’t the drawings fantastic, by the way?
