cpr piers b and c, or pier b-c.
with all the talk of the cpr tracks and kerfoot and the new transit hub, it's cool to recall how things were when this was full-fledged port turf. before it was canada place, it was the cpr's iconic piers b and c.

what an entrance
water view (notice the water facade matched the street facade)
back when men were men and buildings were buildings.
you can see pier d to the west, now the site of the convention centre expansion
a black and white shot (~1979), from the roof of the marine building, of the demolition of the piers.
recall that waterfront road (the road from which one accessed the piers) was linked to the downtown via the granville street viaduct, which looks to be mostly restored in the new transit hub plan (piers b-c are the ones on the right)
