Story of Dunbar, The by Peggy Schofield

Draws on interviews with more than 350 local residents, including both recent arrivals and descendants of pioneers. Their personal accounts are woven together with information from diaries and other records in the City of Vancouver Archives and carefully chosen published sources to form twelve chapters that explore different aspects of community life. The arts, churches and schools, how people shopped and how they got around, where they lived and relaxed are all described. Read about how this streetcar suburb developed from forest and farmland, how it was impacted by world events, and what made it both typical and unique. This is a story of the past century -- from the settlement of the West to the development of a modern world-class city -- brought to life through the experiences of people living in the neighbourhood of Dunbar. It is a reminder that history occurs in the streets of quiet out-of-the-way neighbourhoods as surely as on battlefields and in corporate boardrooms.
