bus roll picWe are super excited to have vancouver bus destination rolls back in the shop!!  These are the original destination signs from the city of Vancouver trolley fleet.  Most of the signs we have are from the late 50’s but a few that are just black and white are earlier than that.  Definitely an amazing piece of Vancouver history!

How giddy were we when one of our customers sent us these beautiful photos processed with film emulations? Mr. Jack Kozera says he does photography as a hobby but we think these photos are pretty amazing. These shots really seem to capture the beauty of each object. I am especially drawn to the photos of the chairs. I think they are like portraits…so much personality! Hope you enjoy them as much as we do…
