From the Back Cover:

Vancouver has experienced many dramatic changes since its beginnings on the edge of the frontier. Once an almost inaccessible logging town, it has grown to be a major North American urban centre, and a jewel of the Pacific Rim. Within a mere century, it has metamorphosed from a little ventured rainforest to a thriving and cosmopolitan metropolis. This book tells the extraordinary story of that coming of age. 150 striking images, carefully reproduced, capture Vancouver in every phase of its growth. See the boomtown created by the coming of the railway. The land of mansions and motor car bought by the Roaring Twenties. The lean city of the Depression and the war years. The scene of intense urban expansion since the fifties. An entertaining chronicle, this Vancouver photo history is essential for every visitor and resident.

About the Author:

Outside of four chilly years spent studying philosophy and literature at the University of Toronto, Aynsley Vogel has lived in Vancouver for twenty years. Her roots in the city stretch back four generations to the turn of the century when her great grandfather H.B.A. Vogel arrived in port from Denmark via Hawaii and San Francisco. Aynsley is a graduate of the Banff Publishing Workshop, and has worked as the volunteer coordinator at the Vancouver International Writers Festival.
