Video: Silent 1940s Film of Vancouver's Parks

Have you ever walked around Stanley Park and wished you could watch a 45 minute silent documentary film from 1940 on Vancouver's parks? Well, look no further than this video from the Vancouver Archives. The video features footage of Memorial West Park, Grandview Park, Trout Lake, Queen Elizabeth Park, and many more. Of particularly interest are shots of Victory Square in the Downtown Eastside, which captures Vancouver's old streetcars going by in the background.
