Rate this:
One hundred years ago, British Columbia was a resource-rich province greeting new arrivals from all over the world who'd come to seek their fortunes. Greetings from British Columbia portrays their "land of dreams" as it once was through the very postcards these pioneers may have mailed home to friends and family. These early picture postcards cost only a penny back then, but their historical importance makes them priceless today. Browsing the pages of Greetings from British Columbia is a trip back in time to when Port Essington was a thriving cannery town, Bowen Island was a tourist's delight, and stagecoaches lined Kelowna's main street. Collectively defining the state of affairs in BC a century ago, each one of the images featured in this book has a story to tell.
