The main feature is based on the earliest known surviving film footage of Vancouver, shot in 1907 by William Harbeck from the front platform of a streetcar as it made its way through the streets of downtown and the West End. Also included is a full-screen version of the same route in 2007. Additional features include news items from 1907, interviews with film and streetcar historians, and more on the life of filmmaker William Harbeck who died in the Titanic disaster of 1912. There is also a film bonus showing Victoria in 1907 shot just days before his Vancouver footage. This Victoria footage shows the Francis Rattenbury-designed B.C. Parliament building, the Empress Hotel under construction, downtown streets and views along the Gorge waterway.
