About the Book

Once an almost inaccessible logging town on the edge of the frontier, Vancouver has metamorphosed into one of the world’s most beautiful urban centres, host city of the 2010 Olympic and Paralympic Winter Games. This book traces Vancouver’s extraordinary coming of age through lively text and 150 evocative historical images that capture the city in every phase of its growth, from the coming of the railway and the arrival of the automobile through to the Depression, the war years and modern-day urbanization.
