Friend of the blog and well known transit figure Angus McIntyre is exhibiting his photos from the late-night shift in East Vancouver.

The photos in Nite Owl were taken between the years of 1973-1976. They capture the time period before the streetcar tracks were removed as well as depict a Vancouver many are forgetting and some never knew.

Check out the Baron Gallery website for more info. Oh, and we’ve written a bunch of posts on Angus, many of which feature his photos. There’s also an interesting podcast Jhen did with Angus exactly 40 years after his first day of work with BC Hydro as a transit operator.

    I like it as well. I wanted to note that the other two photos may or may not be in the exhibit. I’m hoping to check it out soon!

    This is great. I think I know where I am going to be this weekend. I particularly like that the exhibit will be open on Sundays as well. I wonder if there will be a gallery catalogue.

    I remember those old garbage cans (from the bottom photo) on the streets of Vancouver! I guess they were replaced sometime in the 90s?
