Some sights like the Lions Gate Bridge and the Hudson’s Bay building can be spotted in both videos, but there are plenty of examples of how much the city has changed.
Driving through Downtown Vancouver in 1966, there were few office towers to be seen, but the 2017 version shows plenty of glass-and-steel buildings, not to mention more traffic along Georgia Street.
Leah Zille said her husband Dave loves historic footage and has produced similar videos of Port Moody and his hometown of Prince Rupert. He saw the original 1966 video on the news and decided to re-create the drive on his own.
