Let’s go hiking: take a bus to the North Shore, a rare original BCER transit ad from the 1950s or early 1960s designed by Jack Grundle, who was art director there from 1947 to around 1965. This is one of a series of ads recently sent to me by Lia Grundle after I posted some of his work over at Translinked.com. Jack passed away on February 22, 2004, but his wife carries on his artistic legacy and administers his website jackgrundle.ca. I look forward to posting more of these ads at Translinked.com in the near future! This one is my favourite, as it combines everything I love most about the city in one great ad!
There is so much BCER nostalgia waiting to be celebrated at the moment. The CentreA exhibit TO | FROM   BC ELECTRIC RAILWAY, Angus McIntyre at the Baron Gallery, Vancouver Heritage Foundation’s Sept 25 Hycroft lecture, and the Burnaby Museum’s Sept 29 event. Don’t miss out!
