Scope and content

Stock shots. Compiled from the outs of sundry Parry productions, these rolls include footage of cannery operations, cattle ranching, farming, fishing, a foundry, logging, pipe laying, powerhouse and power line construction (Kemano), sawmilling and shipping. In addition, there are such sequences as an amphibious aircraft landing on a lake and taxiing onto land; a CPA DC-8 airliner taking off and in flight; Kelowna's Royal Anne Hotel; CPR locomotive 374 (retired) at Kitsilano Park; Mission Dam; Okanagan Valley apple blossoms; Rocky Mountain scenery and locales; Stanley Park; a fire in a Vancouver shipyard; and Vancouver's streets, skyline & waterfront. 76.3 has some particularly good mid-1950s Vancouver street scenes (with newsboys hawking papers on busy streets), as well as good footage of the waterfront and docks, various cargoes being loaded or unloaded, etc.
