Island in the Creek

Island in the Creek

By Catherine Gourley
$24.95




Vancouver's Granville Island complex rates the status of a genuine urban redevelopment wonder on several counts: it is an old industrial eyesore which has become one of Vancouver's most popular tourist attractions; it is a consciously planned "people place" that works; it is a government-run enterprise that makes money; it is a political creation which almost everyone agrees is a good thing. Vancouver journalist Catherine Gourley skilfully unfolds the story of the island in this visually brilliant pictorial history.
