From the Back Cover:

Surrounded by majestic mountains, verdant forests, and clear blue water, Vancouver is one of Canada's most visually stunning cities, both in terms of its natural beauty and its architectural history. This port city has been a favorite tourist destination since the early 1900s, but as the co-host of the 2010 Winter Olympic and Para-Olympic Games, Vancouver is getting more attention than ever before. Find out what makes it so special in Vancouver Then and Now, a unique photographic history of the city. ¥ This Pacific Rim city has been influenced by decades of immigrants; in fact, Vancouver has the highest concentration of Chinese residents of any North American city. Check out the Millennium Gate and the Sam Kee Building in Chinatown and notice how much has--and hasn't--changed over the years ¥ Bounded on all sides by water, Vancouver is a city of bridges. Discover its beautiful waterways, including the Strait of Georgia, Burrard Inlet, and English Bay. Also explore the Granville Street Bridge, the Capilano Suspension Bridge, and the Lions Gate Bridge that connects the city to the North Shore ¥ Like to shop? Then you'll want to stop by Woodward's department store, which has been at the corner of Georgia and Main since 1898 when it opened to outfit prospectors during the Klondike gold rush. Marvel at then-and-now images of Vancouver's venerable retail giants, such as the Hudson Bay Company, Spencer's, and Woodward's ¥ People have always flocked to Vancouver for its extraordinary gardens. Stroll through Stanley Park, along the Seawall, to the Lost Lagoon, the Hollow Tree, and Prospect Point
