Book - 2002
Rate this:
The images that Peter Grant has collected are mostly previously unpublished and provide fascinating insights into the social history of life on Vancouver Island from 1904 to 1918. The views capture the life and times, particularly the parties and pleasures, in the Island of this long-ago vanished era. These remarkable photographs were created by artistic photographers, sometimes amateurs, who would wander the streets or backcountry looking for business. The images were often produced by cameras the likes of which have not been seen for ages and are now collectors' prized items. "Wish You Were Here" also gives the reader a full understanding of the process and the history of this overlooked art form.
