Vancouver in the Seventies : Photos from a Decade That Changed the City (Hardcover) (Kate Bird)
About this item
Vancouver in the 1970s was a time of immense change, a decade when the young city began to grow into its more mature self, when the social and physical landscape was shifting its axis from a post-war west coast port town to a bustling international metropolis. Fresh out of the freewheeling '60s, it was a time of protest, of political upheaval, of economic boom and of cultural evolution, all of it propelled by a brash energy courtesy of a new wave of entertainers and newsmakers, businesses and builders, sports teams and political upstarts. Through it all, The Vancouver Sun's award-winning photographers were there to chronicle the metamorphosis, from that first Vancouver Canucks hockey game at the Pacific Coliseum to the handover of political power from the Social Credit Party to the NDP and back again to the Socreds. This then, is the photographic story of 10 tumultuous years that changed Vancouver.
