From Brno to BC Bears

In honour of Zuzana, who is doing a terrific job organizing the Canadian half of the Brno Festival of Authors in the Czech Republic that I just got back from, and who is doing her thesis on bears in Canadian literature, here are some pictures of bears from the Vancouver archives. Most of the pictures are by JS Matthews, Vancouver’s first historian and gas jockey.
