Searching for the Cityâ??s Hidden History
Eve Lazarus peels back the layers of Vancouver's history to reveal its surprising hidden depths.
As the author of such BC best-sellers as Cold Case Vancouver, Murder by Milkshake, and Sensational Vancouver, Eve Lazarus has become adept at combining her well-honed investigative skills with an abiding love for her adopted city. These qualities are on full display in her latest book, an exploration of Vancouver's hidden past through the cityâ??s neighbourhoods, institutions, people, and events.
Vancouver Exposed is a nostalgic romp through the city's past, from buried houses to nudist camps, from belly-flop contests to eccentric museums. Featuring historic black-and-white and colour photographs throughout, the book reveals the true heart of the city: one that is endlessly evolving and always full of surprises.
With equal parts humour and pathos, Vancouver Exposed is a vividly entertaining and informative book that pays homage to the Vancouver you never knew existed.
