Presented as a walking tour, this book is perfect for the armchair or virtual traveller as well. The book begins with introductory information on the First Peoples, the maritime fur trade, and the sequence of events that led to the creation of Tofino. The tour takes you along the waterfront and past some of the oldest buildings in Tofino. Along the way, you'll meet some of Tofino's earliest residents. Historic Tofino includes 55 rarely-seen historic photos and a beautiful fold-out map drawn and hand-lettered by Tofino artist, Marion Syme.
