Cottages to Community

Cottages to Community

The Story of West Vancouver’s Neighbourhoods,

Francis Mansbridge, curated by John Moir. West Vancouver Historical Society. 2011.

The title tells the story. In a little over 100 years, West Vancouver grew from cottages along the shoreline into neighbourhoods and a community. This coffee table book of personal memories and current and historic photos tells the stories of West Vancouver’s neighbourhoods, their unique development and character that remains true today.

Cottages to Community is no longer available to purchase but it can be found at the West Vancouver Memorial Library.  We hope to re-issue this book one day.
