Here are some shots that I took in Vancouver, BC in 1977 and 78
Granville-Victoria Rt. 25 Flyer E800 #2627 at the western terminus Marpole Loop. Westbound Dunbar-Renfrew Flyer E800 #2645 turning from Renfrew on to Hastings. Westbound Dunbar-Renfrew Flyer E800 #2613 travelling along Hastings Street.
Eastbound Broadway Cross-Town Flyer E800 #2607 at Broadway and Pine Streets. Westbound Main-Robson CCF Brill #2327 making the turn from Granville on to Robson Street. Westbound Main-Robson CCF Brill #2216 on Burrard Street at Alberni Street.
Westbound Fraser-Cambie CCF Brill #2175 making the turn from Burrard Street on to Robson Street. Davie-Kingsway CFF Brill #2222 at the eastern terminus Joyce Loop. Davie-Kingsway Flyer E800 #2644 at the eastern terminus Joyce Loop.

This 2644 is almost at the terminus of the 19 - KINGSWAY route. It has come E/B on Kingsway, and turned south on Joyce Street, and will coast through the power switch (note teardrops on pavement for direction of switch, still in use in Vancouver), and turned left into the old Joyce Loop. If the driver powered through the switch, this would head west on Joyce, which curves into 41st Avenue. So this loop was also the eastern terminus of the 41 - FORTY FIRST trolley route. The loop was moved in 1985 north on Joyce to a new loop at the Joyce SkyTrain station. Wire was also extended into Burnaby to Metrotown. There is now a condo building at the old loop.

This photo was taken just before metric sales of gas, so the 83.9 cents per imp. gallon would be about 17 cents per litre.

Thank you Angus McIntyre for the information on this photo.
