purchased a substantial parcel of land from Henry Heywood Lonsdale and James Pemberton Fell's Lonsdale Estate. Hamersley's property, called the Town of Lonsdale, later became the town site of North Vancouver. In North Vancouver's early years, Lonsdale Avenue was the spine along which the community developed. Lonsdale is still North Vancouver's most important street and acts as the main artery for commercial, political, and social life. Through rare vintage photographs illustrating how people lived, played, and worked, North Vancouver's Lonsdale Neighbourhood explores the community's fascinating history.

by 1867, the city was the fourth largest in Canada. The most catastrophic fire in the city's history came in 1877, resulting in the loss of some 1,600 homes and businesses. Many of the structures were
rebuilt and are still standing today, contributing to the city's Victorian character. By the 1950s, historic structures began to disappear in the name of progress, and a huge urban renewal development was
carried out in the 1960s. Saint John: 1877-1980 highlights the many changes the city has seen over the years, through photographs of its neighbourhoods, play places, tourist attractions, and residents.

The result was Expo '86, and more than 22 million people came for the party. It took eight years of planning and hard work to transform a former railroad yard into a colourful showplace full of pavilions and shows for the six-month event, but those lucky enough to have been there would agree that it was worth it. Expo '86, truly a world's fair,
included pavilions from 9 provinces and territories, 54 nations and international groups, and 3 American states. Many of Canada's largest industries joined in, as well, to celebrate the fair's theme, "A World
in Movement, A World in Touch." Vintage photographs recapture the fun and excitement of the largest event held to that time in British Columbia.
