Photo: Bridging the Creek

I've probably said it before, but it bears repeating: the Burrard Bridge is easily one of the most aesthetically pleasing bridges in Vancouver, with only the Lions Gate giving it any real competition as far as I'm concerned. It was designed and built in a different time, when form didn't just simply follow function. Compare it to the Granville Street Bridge, an aesthetically dead elevated roadway that remains a perfect product of the staid 1950s, from which this photo was taken.

Give me Art Deco any day.
