This book features numerous photos of early Canadian ferries, including classic wooden boats such as launches and speed boats. Photos are reproduced on high quality paper. The book tells the story of early travel to the Bowen Island holiday resort during the period 1921 – 1956. The central character in this enterprise was Tommy White, who became known to thousands of vacationers. White coped with competitors, politicians, and the Great Depression. This is a true story of boats, people, politics, and romance.
