Discover the hidden stories of Vancouver, revealed in the places where they happened. Tour the city and read stories about the resident ghost of the Vancouver Art Gallery, the Bloody Sunday clash in the Great Depression, the Babes in the Woods murders, and billionaire recluse Howard Hughes holed up at the Bayshore Hotel. For each story, tap the “then and now” feature to watch the present-day photograph dissolve into what the site looked like at the time the story happened. Taken together, the stories present a rich portrait of the city’s past.
