1950s: The Fifties Gallery

Permanent Exhibition

Experience the modest, hopeful dreams of post-war Vancouver.

Vancouver's once streetcar lined streets are altered and re-shaped to accommodate cars. See the neon light up downtown when folks go to nightclubs and movies. Pose for street photographer Foncie Pulice as he snaps portraits of the sidewalk parade. Check out the jukebox and the private lives of teenagers. Live the post-war dream in the neighbourhood of Fraserview, as veterans’ families move into brand new housing. 

For Families
Pick up a self-guided tour worksheet when you purchase your admission and your family will have a great time learning fun facts, searching for answers, and chatting about the past.
