2 of 5 people found the following review helpful By tom Cuffe on Jan. 8 2014
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
The photos required me to use a magnifying glass to look at the people In the pictures. The descriptions were barely adequate. Does the author think that they can copy stock photos already displayed in Chuck Davis Vancouver books and copy almost word for word his writing. This book was a waste of my money. There better books about Vancouver than this one.
