A Vancouver Boyhood

Recollections of Growing Up
in Vancouver 1925-45
Author: Robin Williams

SOLD OUT

A Vancouver Boyhood contains the recollections of Robin Williams on growing up in Vancouver from 1925 to 1945, the years spanning times of prosperity, the great Depression and World War II. Vancouver was a different city back then. These were the days of B.C. Electric streetcars, horse-drawn wagons delivering milk, Union Steamships carrying people up and down the coast, elevators operated by uniformed attendants, black telephones and five cent ice cream cones. This entertaining memoir will enlighten you about the social customs, attitudes and the wrenching conditions of an age gone by.
