During the City of Vancouver’s 125th birthday celebrations in 2011, the Under One Umbrella Society published a wonderful book called “Voices From Grandview-Woodland“. It consists of 125 pages of personal stories of growing up in the neighbourhood by residents of GW and a few pieces from historians such as Bruce Macdonald and me. For anyone interested in the recent history of GW, this is a great source of family and anecdotal information.
The Under One Umbrella Society published this as a fundraiser for their really worthy organization. They still have about 100 copies left for sale and I hope they can sell them out. The available copies are now for sale at the Community Policing Office, 1977 Commercial Drive. The price is a very reasonable $20 or $15 a copy if you buy more than 5 copies.
