Vancouver Honeymoon

by Zbigniew

“Not so long ago … this was a tangle of forest and bush surrounding a handful of shacks in a sparse clearing. The prolific growth, that in time became a source of wealth, had not yet been mastered. It was then only a jumping off place for the loggers, fishermen, and the early prospectors. But in less than a century those shacks have become streamlined pillars of stone and steel and glass –expressing a spacious freedom in their creation. They stand as monuments to men with big ideas and faith in the city’s future.”
