Dreamers & Designers: The Shaping of West Vancouver

OCTOBER 24, 2018 – JANUARY 8, 2019

West Vancouver Memorial Library, in partnership with the West Vancouver Historical Society, has created an exhibit to celebrate the launch of Dreamers and Designers: The Shaping of West Vancouver (Harbour Publishing). Author Francis Mansbridge traces the history of West Vancouver, examining how its approach to land use has shaped the region and the lives who reside within it. Photo archivist John Moir provides a visual account of this changing landscape and mirrors this journey with both archival and contemporary photographs.

Images on display have been selected from the West Vancouver Memorial Library digital collection digital.westvanlibrary.ca, West Vancouver Archive collection archives.westvancouver.ca and City of Vancouver Archives searcharchives.vancouver.ca.

All framed images are available for sale - $100.00 (tax included).

Don't forget to join us for the official book launch of Dreamers and Designers: The Shaping of West Vancouver on Friday October 26, 7 – 8:45 p.m. 

Tuesday, October 23, Art Gallery
