From Chuck Davis' The History of Metropolitan Vancouver

On May 7, 1907 a Seattle film maker named William Harbeck came up to Vancouver to make a movie. That six-minute, silent, black-and-white movie is the earliest we have of the city. It is a fascinating glimpse into the city’s past.

 Vancouver, 1907

The earliest known film footage shot from a streetcar in 1907 by William Harbeck. More info here. Re-posted from
