Vancouver RememberedBook - 2006
An essential record of Vancouver`s recent history. More than 20 years ago, artist Michael Kiuckner created Vancouver: The Way It Was, combining a historical narrative with a unique mix of his own watercolors and a diverse collection of photographs and vintage postcards. Divided into neighborhood sections, it was accessible to everyone from the serious historian to the new resident. It became one of the classic books about the city, and remained in print for more than a decade. In Vancouver Remembered, Kluckner continues his exploration of the city and its multi-layered past. Dozens of new, contemporary watercolors and a tremendous range of previously unpublished images concentrating on the city and its neighborhoods since the Second World War make Vancouver Remembered an essential record of the city`s recent history. Also included is an introductory essay on the city, a section on day trips, an extensive bibliography and bird`s-eye maps of areas that have drastically changed.
