We’ve shared their photos before but can’t stress how much you need to join the Facebook Group Nostalgic/Sentimental Vancouver (Photos). The Group is home to professional and amateur historians alike and images often start out as a mystery that someone dug up – online, in a shoe box, or elsewhere.
A conversation usually ensues in the comments of each photo with people sharing their memories, speculating on the subjects as well as offering insight into the specific photo as well as the general history of our city. It’s one of the most civil and interesting places for conversation on the internet, and I urge you to join the Group if you want to learn more about where Vancouver came from.
These are five of the most interesting photos posted in the past five days to the group. They’re the tip of the iceberg.
