SCRAPBOOK: CBC VCR PHOTO BOARDS COLL #1

PHOTO SCRAPBOOK
CBC VANCOUVER PHOTO BOARDS COLLECTION #1
Courtesy Glenn Weston and Bruce McDonald

The photo boards displayed on the walls of the CBC Vancouver building at 700 Hamilton Street were created by Bruce McDonald. In recent years thanks to Bill Morris and Ken Gibson and now to Glenn Weston taking the time and patience required to photograph them, they can be shared with you via your computer screen.  The originals which are mounted and framed form a series of collages which are fabulous to stand and peruse but sharing them in this way – aside from comfort and viewing them when convenient for you – has the added benefit of captioning each picture (primarily thanks to Glenn Weston!) with the names of those involved.  There’s just one question mark so please let us know if you can identify “Kathy” in photo #9, by contacting https://goo.gl/QNvaxu .  As well, in most instances we don’t know the year the photo was taken or the production (if it was a location shot), so any information would be most welcome!

We hope you enjoy this look back at some of our colleagues from CBC Vancouver.

Photographs are a wonderful part of memories, and very often they form part of collective as much as individual memories.  That’s what this segment is all about – the memories we share of CBC English and French, Television and Radio productions and the people who have made them happen through the years in either work or social settings.  We hope you will enjoy the collections posted here and will search your own and let us share them too.  If you have just one picture or dozens, send them in!  Photo Scrapbook postings appear bi-weekly (every other Monday).

The supply of photographs that your Stationbreak.ca team has to draw from for new Scrapbook and Flashback postings is running out, so PLEASE, dig out your albums and boxes of photos taken prior to the year 2000 and send in your collections for us to share.  Whether the pictures were captured during filming/taping of productions, in the CBC offices, or at social functions with CBC colleagues on or off the CBC premises, we’d love to have them.  If you’re able to scan and send them via e-mail, that would be wonderful, or if you’re willing to loan the original photos we will scan and return them to you.  Please contact Peggy Oldfield via https://goo.gl/QNvaxu and she will supply her direct e-mail address or contact you to make arrangements for scanning of your photos.  We can’t keep these sections going without your input so, in advance, THANK YOU for taking the time to help us.
