There's a thread these could go in about the Uighurs in China. As usual, the quality is a little iffy so 5050 it.

Veeery cool. So, where were they? Sign went by that looked like it said Hastings, but that's gotta be the Cambie St bridge at the end right? Zig zagging around by Cambie, Robson St?

lol Cambie St Bridge in 19oh7. For context, Lions Gate was built in '37. Pretty sure Cambie St Bridge was initially built for the Expoh 86. I have a pretty neat picture of Vancouver from a placemat no less circa 1980 from around Heather and 16th or around up there. It's so different is semi disorientating at first until you place the mountains and Hotel Vans green roof. There was no cambie st bridge, yaletown, science world or marina's. There was still log booms along the sea wall from what was almost Granville Island to Main/1st.

Rewatching it, I think they make 3 cuts to the film and might jump to different areas? You'd know better, my memories of Vancouver don't begin till the mid-seventies and I don't live there so I'm rusty.

My Step-Dad figures it's Hastings & Howe area. Main Street direction used to be pretty shabby he says. They'd meet the junkman there, who still used a horse drawn flat bed into the fifties! 

Apparently Cambie Street Bridge was originally build in 1891. I remember the construction in '86 but apparently that was just the building of the third version of the bridge. 

Vancouver without automobiles was a utopia eh

The wooden planks of the "sidewalk" rumbled when I rode my Cinelli over that bridge.

I guess you do not understand the meaning of the word "random".
