Gathered together in a single volume for the first time, here are the maps and other graphics that bring the history of Vancouver and its region, the Lower Fraser Valley, compellingly to life. More than 370 original maps chart the region’s development, beginning with the years of discovery and exploration. They depict its days as a fledgling colonial outpost, its appearance on the world scene after the arrival of the Canadian Pacific Railway, through to its emergence as a post-war Pacific metropolis. Included are many fascinating plans for schemes that never got off the drawing board.
