Waterfront is a magnificently illustrated, authoritative and lively tour of the dynamic ebb and flow between the water, the surrounding land and the people who strove and dreamed along the shores of the sea and the mighty river that dominate Greater Vancouver. Dramatic stories abound of this place, its people, ships and events: European explorers who sought a fabled passage to the Orient; enterprising lumbermen, railway tycoons, shipping magnates, scoundrels and heroes, hard-working men and women. Their tales play out in this book, entwining the story of the birth and growth of cities, ports, and industries.
