Making Vancouver

Making Vancouver explores social relationships in Vancouver from 1863 to 1913 and reveals a western city that was neither egalitarian nor closed to opportunity. The social boundary that separated the working class from others is revealed as a division that for much of the pre-war boom period divided Vancouver society more fundamentally than the boundary separating labour from capital.
