Canada

Here’s the second part of postcards by Janelle. I figured I’ll skip the whole long “descriptions and whatever” thing, write down the basic what-is-what and just let you enjoy the postcards. :)

1. Stanley Park totems, Brockton Point, Vancouver, Canada – The totem pole is unique to the BC Northwest Coast First Nations. Each pole tells a story, either real or mythical, and is carved from Western Red Cedar. In the 1920’s the Vancouver Parks Board started buying totems to put in Stanley Park to represent the vast influence of First Nations in the park and in British Columbia. They were originally located at Lumberman’s Arch and in the early 1960’s the pole were moved to their present location near Brockton Point. More HERE!

The current bridge is 140 meters long and 70 meteres above the river. It draws more tha 800,000 visitors each year. More about the bridge, HERE!
