When one thinks of Vancouver -– perhaps the first things that come to mind are the mountains, the oceans, and all of the natural splendour we enjoy. This is exactly what drew people to settle here so many years ago, and history buffs like Will Woods are bringing their stories and histories to light again; in all their grit and glory.

Angus McIntyre is a retired bus driver of 41 years. A lifelong interest in transportation, lighting and urban history led him to documenting the city scene through photography. As a natural night owl, the late night shift was an obvious choice and his camera frequently went along for the ride. In the deserted streets of old East End, he captured the details of light on streetcar tracks and the faded glory of corner grocery stores. McIntyre's night time photographs of emptiness of the city and its streets show us a recent but seemingly distant past.

In case you were trying to compile or starting to tackle a good list of summer reads, Revolver is going to make it easy for you.
The Cambie street cafe is teaming up again with Vancouver's Sons + Lovers Books to host a pop-up book shop this Sunday, May 20th from 1-4PM (heads up - it will be cash only). After a huge success with their holiday sale at Revolver, which featured 5-book bundles of awesome reads, Sons + Lovers has again scoured their sources between here and Seattle to bring all the classics to the table: beautiful used editions of Hemingway, Fitzgerald, Salinger, Steinbeck, Vonnegut, Austen, Heller, and - of course - D.H. Lawrence (whose novel their company is named after).
