Anakana Schofield – Award Winning Author of Bina, Martin John and Malarky

Interesting morning looking at material and images of strikes in Vancouver from the 1930’s period and fire insurance maps from the 1960’s. Amid the longshore workers documentation I caught an outta place single image from March 1970. The index explanation described the picture as: girl in bikini up Grouse Mountain with skier in the background.  Common city past time heading up Grouse Mountain in a bikini. Glad to see it has archival significance!

I was also inquiring into the matter of postboxes, postal routes and taxi ranks, the archivist looked puzzled I’ve never heard of anyone doing this research says he, assuring me he’s certain they have no such thing.
