Surrey: A City of Stories by K. Jane Watt

surrey-city-of-stories

Surrey:  A City of Stories is a Canada 150 legacy project produced by Heritage Services (City of Surrey).  Author, Jane Watt, recounts Surrey’s history from ancient times to the present, using photographs of artifacts, maps, historical photographs and documents.  Watt also includes transcriptions from oral histories. The extensive use of visuals to accompany text is very successful.  The past is brought to life vividly and clearly.  Most importantly, Watt demonstrates how Surrey residents of all backgrounds, collectively and individually, shaped our city in the past and in the present.
