Hollyburn by Francis Mansbridge

Book Description

This is the first book to be published on the rich and diverse history of Hollyburn, the forested mountainous area above West Vancouver, BC -- an area which will host freestyle skiing and snowboarding events in the 2010 Winter Olympics. The history takes us from the First Nations people, through the 1870s when loggers began attacking the slopes, to the twentieth century and the dedicated crowds of skiers and other outdoor enthusiasts, right up until the present-day struggles over priorities for the environment.

Vancouver Then & Now by Francis Mansbridge Vancouver Then & Now, Hardback (April 2015)

"Looks at archival photos throughout a century of dramatic change, from a time when the massive trees were felled and forests were cleared, and when Victorian gentlemen raced penny farthings around Stanley Park. The book contrasts fascinating historic images with the same locations as they appear today"--Page 4 of cover.
