Doorway of the Vancouver Marine Building
About This Image
doorway of the Vancouver Marine Building, downtown Vancouver, BC Canada. (355 Burrard Street).
the Marine Building is Vancouver's finest example of Art Deco architecture. It was once the tallest building in the British Empire.
The Marine Bldg opened in 1930 at a cost of $2.3 million ($1.1 million over budget), it was the talk of the town. Uniformed doormen stood by the massive brass doors opening onto the dazzling lobby, and sailor-suited women waited to escort passengers in 5 high speed elevators. It was by far the most glamorous structure many visitors had seen in their lives.
