Research librarian Kate Bird and Vancouver Sun journalist Shelley Fralic combinbed their skills and knowledge to present 149 photos from the Vancouver Sun archives for Vancouver in the Seventies: Photos from a Decade That Changed the City (Greystone 2016), featuring representative image from the era as well as pivotal moments in the city's history such as the Gastown Riot and the founding of Greenpeace. Personalities range from a five-year-old Justin Trudeau to the iconic Chief Dan George.

ARTICLE (2017): City On Edge: A Rebellious Century of Vancouver Protests, Riots, and Strikes (Greystone Books $32.95)

Most of City On Edge: A Rebellious Century of Vancouver Protests, Riots, and Strikes (Greystone Books $32.95) provides images taken by Vancouver Sun and Province photographers of Vancouverites rising up to make their opinions, and often their anger, known to the powers-that-be. An accompanying Museum of Vancouver exhibition of the same name provides greater historical context.

In City On Edge the emphasis is pictorial-it's a parade of images from Squamish Chief Joe Capilano with a delegation of chiefs leaving North Vancouver to petition King Edward VII for First Nations rights in 1906; to the bloodied faces of relief camp workers demanding better jobs in 1938; to Grey Cup rioters in 1966; to pussy-hatted women supporting the Women's March in Washington in response to President Donald Trump's inauguration in 2017.

There's a brief foreword from Charles Demers and a short intro by Kate Bird who helped manage the photo library at Pacific Press for twenty-five years.
