Once an almost inaccessible logging town, Vancouver has grown into a major North American urban center and a jewel of the Pacific Rim. Within a mere century, it has metamorphosed from a little-explored rain forest to a thriving and cosmopolitan metropolis that will host the 2010 Olympics. This book shares the city's extraordinary coming of age through 150 striking images. Carefully reproduced, they capture Vancouver in every phase of its growth, from the coming of the railway to the intense urban expansion that has taken place since the 1950s.
