Papertown Station Story Map 

Welcome to our website's newest feature! We're filling it with our favourite West Coast stories so that our readers can browse neighbourhoods instead of our whole collection. Each Papertown Train Station icon will lead you to a story about that location.
We hope you find a few Papertown Stations in your neighbourhood!


Using the Story Map

Using the Papertown Station Story Map can be as simple as four easy steps:
1. Drag and pull the map and zoom in or out of your desired location to reveal more icons. The +/—at the bottom left of the map can help you do this. Zooming out can also reveal additional icons (e.g., London, San Francisco, Panama Canal, etc.).

2. Click on any Papertown Station icon to reveal a story outline. Each outline provides a link to connect you to the whole story.
3. Click on the small arrow at the top left of the map to open the menu and display all of the stories loaded onto the map. Clicking on one will highlight the station on the map with a white halo. Some stories are listed more than once because they occur across several locations. Remove the checkmarks from other periods in the menu if you are only interested in one time period. The different periods disappear so that all that remains on the map are Papertown Station Story icons of your desired period.

4. Use the four-cornered square at the top right of the map to expand it and the three-dot icon beside it to share it on social media.
