Robin Ward's Heritage West Coast
by Robin Ward
Book DescriptionThis second book by the Vancouver Sun columnist, author of the successful Robin Ward's Vancouver, offers 60 drawings of structures in Vancouver, Victoria, Seattle and points between. The Sun Yat Sen Gardens and Cathedral Place in downtown Vancouver, the Empress Hotel and Eaton Centre in Victoria, historic structures in Britannia Beach and Port Townsend - Ward brings to all of them his special eye for detail, his insatiable curiosity about social history and his love for the unique character of each town and city. His drawings are accompanied by spirited commentary on decisions we make about our heritage sites - from the innovative and responsible to the downright scandalous.
