McPhee Collection

This collection holds the works of local amateur photographer William (Bill) McPhee. Bill worked closely with West Vancouver Memorial Library staff in the late 1980s and early 1990s to document the changing landscape of West Vancouver. His straightforward documentary style focuses mainly on houses and businesses in the Ambleside and Dundarave neighbourhoods.
