Archive Photos of the Day: West End From Stanley Park

Stanley Park is one of my favourite places to profile since it is a living reminder of the history of the area combined with the ever-changing landscape of the City of Vancouver. While I have featured photos of its entrance arches, bridges and eventually the causeway that bisected Coal Harbour (creating Lost Lagoon), I have finally come across a few photos that provide a different perspective.
