The Canucks: A Photo History of Vancouver's Team is an exhibition of photographs looking back on the history of the Vancouver Canucks, and is taking place on the special occasion of Rogers Hometown Hockey presented by Scotiabank in North Vancouver (March 14-15). The rare photos on view span decades, beginning in the 1950s and ’60s when the Canucks played in the Western Hockey League, through the team’s franchising with the National Hockey League from 1970 onward. Most of the pictures were captured by long-time Vancouver Sun news photographer Ralph Bower, a North Vancouver resident, and are being shown for the first time from his personal collection along with photos from the Vancouver Sun Archive and ephemera.
Please join us on Sunday, March 8 at 2:00 pm for The Canucks: A Photo History of Vancouver's Team opening reception.
