Product Description

About the Author

Michael Kluckner is an artist and writer who has spent more than two decades recording and interpreting, in a dozen books, the histories and landscapes of Vancouver, British Columbia, and Canada. A Vancouverite by birth, he has travelled extensively, always carrying a sketchbook, and developed an appreciation for the visual and emotional subtleties of our changing world? attributes that enliven his writing and his watercolours.

Excerpt. © Reprinted by permission. All rights reserved.

A couple of days after I returned, still disoriented from jet lag, I walked through downtown, along Hastings and into Gastown. Woodward's was gone, or most of it at any rate. Where its modest W had once punctuated the modest skyline, an enormous tower, like something dropped from outer space, loomed over the century-old brick and stone buildings that citizen activism and small-business investment had saved 40 years earlier. It was so out of scale—how had that happened?

Vancouver we loved and still love Jan. 5 2011
By Joan - Published on
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
"Vanishing Vancouver" is both beautiful and informative. A coffee table must for people like me who have happy memories of our childhood there in the '50's and still care about the city as it continues to evolve.
