A video posted to YouTube recently shows what Vancouver looked like in 1964.

The fascinating home footage was posted by YouTube user Mark Holtze, who says in the description that it was captured in 1964 by his Great Grandfather Marcel Holtze during a train trip from Toronto to Vancouver.

The first half of the colour video shows the views from the railcar during the cross country journey. Then at the 2 minute 4 second mark the action moves to Vancouver, including footage of Lions Gate Bridge, Queen Elizabeth Park and Georgia Street.
