One of this city’s favourite historians and authors …
• Gentrification in Vancouver
September 30th, 7:30 pm at Hycroft, 1489 McRae Avenue:
My lecture on Gentrification in Vancouver, its historical roots in the city and its relationship to heritage, urban renewal and The Big Picture of global economic changes in recent decades.

Shelter from the Storm

October 16th, 7:30 pm at Kerrisdale Community Centre:

Free lecture on about the evolution of house design in Vancouver, with a passing glance at apartments and condos, showing how each change has mirrored the way people want to live. See here for further details.

• Vintage Vancouver films at the VanCity Theatre
Seymour Street downtown
This year’s showing of old films from the City of Vancouver Archives which I have curated and will narrate is entitled Vancouver – A Progressive City. The early Kodachrome of, for example, the Jersey Farms’s horse-drawn milk delivery in 1940, or the colour aerials of Vancouver during the same period, are the closest we will likely get to time travel.




November 2nd, 2:30 pm, the 2014 set; 7:30 pm, the 2012 show repeated
November 30th, 2:30 pm, a repeat of the 2014 show
Details of ticket-purchasing will be included in an email to you about a month from now.


• Historic Panoramas

November 13th at the H.R. MacMillan Space Centre: another show of historic panoramas, supplemented by early aerial photographs, projected onto the dome of the planetarium. Details to follow in a later email.
