British Columbia by the Road
British Columbia by the Road: Car Culture and the Making of a Modern Landscape | Ben Bradley
2 posts
In British Columbia by the Road, Ben Bradley takes readers on an unprecedented journey through the history of roads, highways, and motoring in British Columbias Interior, a remote landscape composed of plateaus and interlocking valleys, soaring mountains and treacherous passes. Challenging the idea that the automobile offered travellers the freedom of the road and a view of unadulterated nature, Bradley shows that boosters, businessmen, conservationists, and public servants manipulated what drivers and passengers could and should view from the comfort of their vehicles. Although cars and roads promised freedom, they offered drivers a curated view of the landscape that shaped the provinces image in the eyes of residents and visitors alike.

Finally made it to #Canada 🇨🇦 🇨🇦 🇨🇦 🙌🏻🙌🏻🙌🏻

Let the Sunshine Coast adventure begin 🌊🏞🐬

First thing we came across right around the corner from our cute little guesthouse in Vancouver was this delightful Little Free Library 👏🏼 And along the way we found several more. So I already feel at home - this is obviously a Litten-kinda-place 😊

Just arrived. I'll be using it in material history class, the session on car culture. Have looked through it only, but it looks good.
