1939: Traffic on (and above) the Lions Gate Bridge
Ken Ohrn sends this frascinating shot along, taken in 1939, shortly after the Lions Gate Bridge opened:
This photo is from my Dad’s collection. He was an RCAF Sergeant stationed at Jericho Beach at the time. The aircraft (a Stranraer) is shown flying over the newly-constructed Lions Gate Bridge. The military unit was called RCAF #4 Bomber Reconnaissance Squadron.
I count about a dozen cars on this two-lane bridge.
