    Silent-movie posters in Vancouver house found under floorboards

    George Bryce, a Vancouver lawyer, uncovered a treasure trove of silent-film posters when he replaced the fir floors inside his 1924 house on Vancouver's West Side. Bryce has now sold the posters and will soon ship them to an art dealer in New York.

    Bryce first became aware of the posters 15 years ago when he hired a flooring company for a small project in his front hallway.

    "They tore up the old fir floor and put down a new oak floor. They pointed out to us there was actually movie posters on the hallway floor. So we knew all the floors would have posters in them," he said.

    Bryce could see the posters through cracks and knots in the sub-floor when looking up from unfinished sections of his basement. During a recent renovation, Bryce carefully pulled up old flooring and found 10 posters, dating back to the early 1920s.
