10 BARR, James, Capt. Ferry Across the Harbor : The story of the North Vancouver Ferries. First Edition in dustjacket.
Mitchell Press, 1969, 
BARR, James, Capt. Ferry Across the Harbor [dustjacket adds subtitle : The story of the North Vancouver Ferries]. Vancouver : Mitchell Press Limited, (1969). First Edition. Pp (5),vi-xi,(1),1-71,(1). Illustrated. 8vo, blue cloth, white lettering to front, plain spine. "From early morning until longafter midnight, in weather fair and foul, the North Van ferries churned th e waters of Burrard Inlet to link the north and south shores of the Port ofVancouver. At times they slipped over the dancing, sunlit, sheltered water s while passengers "took the air" before burying themselves in factories oroffice buildings for their daily duties. At other times they moved quickly but cautiously through fog that cut visibility to zero, then groped for th e ferry slip leads that would guide them to a brief docking to discharge and reload. Shuttling incessantly across the main traffic of the harbor in the path of mighty freighters that on miscalculation could easily have destroyed anyone of them, the ferries were guided skilfully and there was no instance of disaster by collision or any other cause. The skyline on the south side changed from forest to buildings, the port became world famous. Ships of the seven seas with strange flags and exotic ports of origin and destination came and went in an increasing stream; but oblivious to these more colorful momentary companions the faithful ferries went on ploddingly in unfailing, seamanlike performance of their nautical routines. Yet they were not without their moments and their stories, as witness this volume of recollections." (from the dj). Contents : Introduction; The early history; The Second Narrows Bridge; The years without a bridge; The night run; Fog; Accidents and a near miss; The passengers; The administration; Personnel; The Second Narrows Bridge replaced; The war years; The post-war period; The last tenyears.
