Our Book

Tracks in Time: Port Moody’s First 100 Years provides a fascinating history of the small town in British Columbia from 1880 to 1980. Using text, photos and personal first-hand accounts, the Port Moody Heritage Society creates a dramatic, factual account of Port Moody life. From the coming of the Canadian Pacific Railway and the birth of the port, to the emergence of industries like lumber and oil refining, each chapter paints a picture of how Port Moody developed through the decades. The human side is portrayed in the histories of sports and recreation, special events and life during the Depression and World War II. Notable stories highlight some of the most sensational and poignant moments in Port Moody’s history.

This full colour, 192 page hard cover edition is a must have for any Port Moody enthusiast. Purchase yours today below or at the Port Moody Station Museum. The Book is also available at the City of Port Moody, City Hall and Blackberry Gallery at the Port Moody Arts Centre.

It’s a really fantastic achievement, and I think everyone involved should be very proud. I also love the picture in the front, it’s great to see all the old-timers together like that.”
