7:00-8:00 pm Cash and credit were scarce in the Great Depression, and on rural Vancouver Island many people resorted to the forests, the clearcuts, and the intertidal zone for sustenance. A common Depression expression was “When the tide is out the table is set”! In this illustrated talk, Dr. Richard Somerset Mackie reviews the Depression-era strategies of survival, with a special focus on the Comox Valley. Dr. Mackie is a freelance historian, biographer and celebrated author of Island Timber and its sequel, Mountain Timber, which was published in October 2009. You’ll love this entertaining and illuminating talk. Speaker provided by UVic Speaker’s Bureau. (starfishian)
