Vancouver in the Seventies by Kate Bird
Vancouver in the Seventies: Photos from a Decade That Changed the City by Kate Bird  

Fresh out of the freewheeling sixties, the seventies was a decade of immense change for Vancouver. It was 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. Shooting more than 4,500 photo assignments each year, they covered news, politics, business and industry, sports, entertainment, food and fashion, without missing a beat.

These images capture pivotal moments in this dynamic city's history, including the Gastown Riot, the founding of Greenpeace, the wide-eyed innocence of five-year-old Justin Trudeau and the amazing film career of Chief Dan George. Vancouver in the Seventies presents 149 exclusive photos from the Vancouver Sun's extensive collection along with fascinating essays by long-time Sun news research librarian Kate Bird and former Sun journalist Shelley Fralic, coupled with 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.
