Renowned author and map historian Derek Hayes provides a new and unique perspective on the Lower Mainland's colourful past.
Gathered together in a single volume for the first time, here are the maps that shaped Vancouver and its region, the Lower Fraser Valley. 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.
This is the sixth in a series of critically acclaimed, award-winning historical atlases researched, written and designed by Derek Hayes. They include, most recently, a Historical Atlas of Canada and America Discovered: A Historical Atlas of North American Exploration.
