Description
A paperback edition of the award-winning book is now available, just in time for the 125th anniversary of the City of Vancouver.A nuanced collection of historical fact, personal anecdotes, and local knowledge, Vancouver Remembered is a handsome volume that pays homage to Vancouver's past. Kluckner brings the story of Vancouver's rich history to life using a unique mix of his own watercolour paintings, archival and private photographs, vintage postcards, hand-rendered maps, reproductions of vintage advertisements, and other ephemera.Focusing on the decades between World War II and Expo 86, Vancouver Remembered follows the decline and rebirth of what has become one of the world's most livable cities. Kluckner goes neighbourhood by neighbourhood peeling back layers of the past, looking beyond the surface and telling you what and who used to be there. His well-researched historical narrative combines with his own personal reflections on his hometown as he takes readers through the transitions and changes this city has experienced in the past 70 years. These stories give Vancouverites a new understanding of themselves and of their place.
