I remember driving over that old bridge with my dad when i was 5, would have been 1962ish

Was it still open then? The Iron Workers bridge was opened in 1960.

Second Narrows with some forest on the other side.

Pre 1933 pic. The province bought it then after it had been hit several times by ships and was out of service for 4 years. And replaced it with a lift deck.

They kept it open until the new train bridge was built.

thats cool. my dad grew up in deep cove - by the sounds of it things looked a bit different in the 1950's (no kidding hey?). Even growing up in the 80's and 90's I remember Vancouver as a totally different place than it is now.

It's amazing to see the devastating effect we're having on the landscape in such a short period of time.

Having done that exact ride many, many, times, it's trippy to see how it looked back then and getting quick glimpses of familiar landmarks and the few buildings that have lasted since then.

Gas stations and chain restaurants sure hold on to their turf.

There is other ones on youtube. There is one from the late 50's of a guy driving out of Deep Cove before the Raven was built. I grew up right near there, so crazy to watch

That race is awesome. I hope they all got a PR on the "Badger Badger Badger" segment!

My best guess is they went up Gallant, along Deep Cove Road [HTML_REMOVED] Dollarton Hwy to the start of the 90 degree corner on Dollarton, then took a trail into the north end of Cates Park, followed a course around the park, with the finish up the boat ramp.
