Glimpses of the Past: c.1930s
MISSION-VANCOUVER STAGE was the original bus line that provided passenger service from Mission to Vancouver starting in c.1929. The business was owned and operated by William Henry Pottruff until 1936. In May of that year, he sold the business to BC Motor Transportation Ltd. who in turn appointed him local superintendent of the company. The service was renamed the Pacific Stage Lines. The buses are parked on First Avenue in front of John L. English's Drugstore (1925-1966).
