Vancouver As It Was: A Photo-Historical Journey

"The impact of historical landscape can drive a man to books, to deepen his understanding and sharpen his insight, for to live on the surface, without concern for the roots that distinguish his little piece of history from any and all others, is to live shallowly, unknowingly, is to deny the sense of the past which sets us apart from less rational creatures." Lawrence Clark Powell (former Librarian of UCLA and bibliophile), Southwest Classics.

And the structural reasons why it works can be used by any neighbourhood looking to improve its main street, regardless of that street’s political bent. Firstly, it’s geared toward walking.

In their words, the sculpture is meant to pay homage to the element of water and untamable forces of nature, as well as capture the complexity of Vancouver's waterfront.
