West Vancouver Memorial Library and West Vancouver Historical Society co-hosted the launch of the latter’s latest book, Dreamers and Designers: The Shaping of West Vancouver on Oct. 26. For their third collaboration, author Francis Mansbridge and photographer John Moir recall how the history of West Van was shaped by the surrounding coastal and mountainous landscape, and the major personalities who contributed to the growth and flavour of the community. The book features historic images and contemporary photography. The library will showcase a photographic display of images until December that focuses on West Vancouver development.
