Happy Friday! Time for the third in a series of blog posts that celebrate the “Book Blogs” created by students in Professor Siân Echard’s “The History of the Book” course during the spring 2015 term. For this assignment, students in the class were asked to choose an item (book or otherwise) from RBSC, research its history, and introduce it to a public audience through a blog.
This week, Jane Shi takes a look at a booklet produced in 1955 by the Pender Y.W.C.A. in cooperation with Chinese Merchants of Vancouver: Chinatown Tours.
Enjoy Jane’s thorough analysis of this deceptively simple little pamphlet.
