Only light edge wear.; A bright, solid book, DJ in protective Mylar sleeve, unclipped. ; B&W Illustrations; 4to 11" - 13" tall; 152 pages; If British Columbia has a favourite transportation saga, it is the story of the legendary Union Steamship Company, which operated a float of funky little steamships up and down the BC coast between 1890 and 1955. And if there is a worthy tribute to the Union Steamships, it is this generously illustrated history. The fascinating story of the legendary Union Steamship Company, which operated up and down the BC coast between 1890 and 1955. The Union Steamship Company was an essential part of BC life during the late 1800s and early 1900s. For hundreds of people living along the coast of BC, the Union Steamship Company was the only link to the outside world. In this bright, well-illustrated, genuine history - with 100 photographs, many of them never published before - the heyday of the Union Steamships comes beautifully to life.
