Turn-of-the-last-century Sunday walkers pose on the 60-centimetre wide catwalk along to the rushing Capilano flume, a water channel built to carry shingle bolts (short logs).
The flume, which lasted from 1905 until the First World War, was popular with people who enjoyed dramatic vistas while walking the flume’s catwalk on Sundays.
The Capilano flume clung to the sheer Second Canyon 60 metres above the river. At a length of 14.5 km, it was the longest in North America.
