Vancouver has always been a hot tourism destination. From being marketed as the “City of Destiny” to visitors sending postcards around the globe to say: “wish you were here”. I searched the Vancouver Archives and Vancouver Public Library Archives this week to find some old postcards that tourists and locals alike could purchase and send home throughout the years.

1927 – Kitsilano Beach. VPL Number: 86724. Photographer: Leonard Frank.

    Love the collection you posted! I’m always excited to find old postcards through vintage shops and rummage sales, no matter where I’m exploring.
