TIME TRAVELLER: Hauling camera equipment up Goat Mountain

North Vancouver photographer Jack Wardlaw (right) using an eight-millimetre movie camera and Nels Stromgren (left) using an 8x10 view camera are seen in this striking photo on Goat Mountain from September 1926.

There is a second view camera on the ground between them. Imagine having to haul all this heavy and cumbersome gear up Goat Mountain today! If they had ventured out on this trip 20 years earlier, Stromgren would have been using glass photographic plates, making their load even heavier.

The photographer taking the photo was Lindsay Loutet.
