Vancouver sure has changed over the past 40 years. After sitting in storage for several decades, photographer POP SNAP uncovered the slides they had put away and started basic lo-res scanning of these Kodachrome pictures. Kodachrome is quite challenging to scan, as they told us, but as you can see, it was all worth it.
POP SNAP’s interest was largely in buildings and structures, which form the basis for most of the photos. Almost all pictures from the set were shot on sunny days.
We’ve chosen just some of the photos from POP SNAP’s Vancouver 1970s sets. To see more, visit their Flickr page.
