Vancouver and Beyond
Pictures and Stories From the Postcard Era 1900-1914Book - 2000
An anthology of 50 stories about Vancouver and environs in the early years of the 20th century. These stories grew out of a collection of picture postcards -- not just any old postcards, but particularly appealing 'real photo' cards that seemed to be waiting to have their stories told. While some of the images are not uncommon, most of the pictures are rare, if not one-of-a-kind survivors of the 'golden age' of postcards, which encompassed the years between 1900 and 1914, the relatively short period of time when Vancouver ended its days as a frontier town and became a significant Canadian city.
