Includes 4 maps, 5 pamphlets, 8 scanned photos.
In March 1954, Gale compiled two books for 1944 and 1950 containing information and photographs, designed to interest potential clients in Vancouver and West Vancouver. These have been consolidated into one binder. Each originally included a wide variety of material related to housing development, although the material acquired is mainly limited to information and photographs directly related to residential areas in West Vancouver.
Each area is designated by a letter, keyed to a map, with descriptive text and photographs.
