CPR’s Pier B and Pier C, Burrard Inlet, Vancouver, B.C., Canada sometime in the late 1950s

CPR’s Pier B and Pier C, Burrard Inlet, Vancouver, B.C., Canada sometime in the late 1950s. This is now the site of Canada Place with its iconic sails, including the East Building, Vancouver Convention Centre, the Pan Pacific Hotel Vancouver, Vancouver’s World Trade Centre, and the cruise ship terminal. The East Building, Vancouver Convention Centre was previously known as the Vancouver Convention and Exhibition Centre.

CPR’s Pier B and Pier C were built in 1927 for the CP Steamships fleet, and other passenger and freight ships. The piers were replaced with the construction of Canada Place in March 1983, using some of the Pier B and Pier C pilings, and served as the Canada Pavilion for Expo 86.
