Blast from the Past: Video on Making of the Pan Pacific Vancouver and Canada Place

This month, the Pan Pacific Vancouver is celebrating its 25 Year Anniversary.

To be exact, on January 8, 1986, the Pan Pacific Vancouver and Canada Place opened its doors for the first time to celebrate Expo 86.

To commemorate this historic milestone, I thought I’d showcase photos from the past quarter century.

To do this, I began to rummage through the Hotel archive room (a place not often visited). As I digged around, I found myself sifting through countless VHS tapes, cassetes and 3.5 inch floppy disks! As I made my way past these foreign items, I found a CD titled: “Making of the Pan Pacific Vancouver.” It was an interesting watch indeed!

Take a look at this video for a rarely before seen look at the Pan Pacific, Canada Place and the Vancouver skyline.

Warning: 80’s music and cheesy narrator included!
