It’s hard to believe that 2011 was seven years ago, it feels like just yesterday. For this edition of On this day in Buzzer Blog history, we’re throwing back to a throwback post where we shared a cool piece of transit history sent to us by Bob Hassan, who had inherited his late fathers collection of Buzzer relics.
This edition of The Buzzer dates back to February 15, 1929 and shares quite the interesting story, the discovery of an old document detailing the state of Vancouver back in 1898! Grab a PDF of The Buzzer here to read the full edition!
Our trip down memory lane doesn’t stop with this classic print. Bob also shared with us some of his late father’s treasured old transportation tickets!
If you happen to stumble upon old editions of The Buzzer or other historic transit artifacts and don’t know what to do with them, please consider sending them our way! We’ll archive the edition and make a .pdf of it to put on the TransLink website for all to enjoy!
