If this guy placed any ads in the paper, we'll bring him in.

Newspaper vending machines near Canada Place.  Currently used machines of this nature do not have their coin box sticking out at the top as in PoV, nor do they fail to clearly indicate exactly what newspaper they dispense (the one in the movie has no markings).  Jane buys the National Post (a national newspaper supplied in the middle dispenser in the above photo) in chapter 1 and can be seen reading another copy of the same newspaper in chapter 9.  The left dispenser supplies the local Province newspaper, while the right dispenser supplies the Vancouver Sun.  The newspaper Jane reads in chapter 5 to discover Mary's death and from which she cuts out her picture - The Vancouver Daily News - does not exist.  If you look carefully, you can see the PoV film makers simply created a fake front page for the Vancouver Sun for that occasion.




Mastheads from each of the real-life newspapers mentioned above.


Part of the Personal column from the Province.  This is the only newspaper that seemed to carry such classifieds out of those shown above.  Just for the record, there is no instance of anyone conducting regular personal correspondence in these columns as seen in PoV.
