chained on main

Gunter's chain has been used as the standard dimension to determine survey markings for the parceling of acreage throughout the United States and Canada. The chain is equal to 4 rods, 22 yards, 66 feet, 1/80 of a mile or 20.1168 metres. The standard lot size in Vancouver is 33 feet wide and 122 feet long- in other words, half a chain wide on the street side and two chains in length. The still film consists of 805 still pictures taken in 33 foot intervals along the eastern side of Main St from the Fraser River to Burrard Inlet.
