Old Photographs of Cars in Vancouver from 1920-1939 (Gallery)

On my latest visit to the Vancouver Archives, I was browsing more images of cars from Vancouver and the surrounding area. I found that there were so many amazing photos the first time that I shared images of cars, that I decided to break up the images and make a series spanning 20 years at a time. So, for this second gallery of old photographs of cars in Vancouver, I will showcase images from the years 1921-1940. Enjoy!
