Photographs from Vancouver in 1973-1976 by Angus McIntyre
Curated by historian and author John Atkin
is a retired bus driver of 41 years. A lifelong interest in transportation, lighting and urban history led him to documenting the city scene through photography. As a natural night owl, the late night shift was an obvious choice and his camera frequently went along for the ride. In the deserted streets of old East End, he captured the details of light on streetcar tracks and the faded glory of corner grocery stores. McIntyre's night time photographs of emptiness of the city and its streets show us a recent but seemingly distant past.
