As promised here are more interior shots of the Marine Building in Vancouver that Smallville uses for the Daily Planet.  I found some more of the elevator including the inside and surprisingly Smallville did an incredible job of duplicating the real one as you'll see under the cut.  The interior is a bit over the top but during this time of the race to build taller and more lavish skyscrapers in North American cities I'm glad that it still survived because sadly so many others have been torn down. For example the Toronto art  deco tower that was the home for the Toronto Daily Star that Joe Shuster worked at and was the inspiration for the Daily Planet is gone except for its artful brass doors.  I stumbled across them one day downtown when I was helping Alexander in his stroller and noticed them and a small plaque.


Interior Lobby of the Marine Building



 

I can't wait to visit the inside of this building.  In 1930 it was the tallest building in the British Empire and looked over the entrance of Vancouver's harbor.
