Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Named for a British sea explorer, Vancouver was conceived in the early 1800s when Lewis and Clark camped at the waterfront and deemed the area ripe for settlement. The Hudson's Bay Company soon established its fur-trading empire here, and "Fort Vancouver" became the commercial center of the area. In 1849 American troops set up Columbia Barracks nearby, establishing the area as a military stronghold. In 1857 the city of Vancouver was incorporated, and gradually became an important industrial and residential city. Vancouver is now a big city, and along with nearby Portland, Oregon, is home to high-tech, maritime, lumber, and manufacturing industries.

About the Author

Author Pat Jollota, who spent 22 years as curator of the Clark County Historical Museum, has compiled this amazing collection of images of Vancouver's beginning and early downtown. Jollota, who serves on Vancouver's city council, is also the author of the historic book Naming Clark County, as well as a collection of Clark County ghost stories, Darkness Next Door.
