Vancouver in the Seventies: Photos From a Decade That Changed the City

An extraordinary visual record of one of the most important decades in Vancouver’s history. 

Fresh out of the freewheeling sixties, the seventies was a decade of immense change for Vancouver—a time of protest, political upheaval, economic boom, and cultural evolution. Through it all, The Vancouver Sun‘s award-winning photographers chronicled the city’s metamorphosis.

Vancouver in the Seventies: Photos From a Decade That Changed the City presents photographs from The Vancouver Sun’s extensive collection along with essays by retired news research librarian Kate Bird and long-time Sun columnist Shelley Fralic, and a foreword from renowned Vancouver author Douglas Coupland. Together, these words and images form an unforgettable celebration of the decade in which Vancouver came into its own.

Vancouver in the Seventies was nominated for a 2016 British Columbia Historical Writing Award.
