The William Head quarantine station has been a history waiting to be told for years. Peter Johnson beat me to it, though — and he did a fine job with his book, Quarantined. It is a thorough account of the station, plus much more, including the way diseases were treated and detected before the station was opened, the hardships encountered in ocean travel, and the people who operated and lived at William Head.

Quarantined is rich in detail about the station, and includes the context that helps make it relevant today, when its history is hidden behind prison fences. The book contains plenty of surprises, such as the transit of the 85, members of the Chinese Labour Corps through William Head, travelling to the combat areas of Europe during the First World War. This story is part of our local history, but could be lost without books such as this.
Quarantined is well illustrated with images of the station and its people.
And yes, there are maps as well. All three are strong historical works. Peter Johnson will speak about the William Head quarantine station at 7 p. Thursday, Nov. Admission is free; copies of the book will be available for purchase, with a portion of proceeds going to the Metchosin Museum Society. Stage Left: Belfry's Bang Bang aims high, taps into cultural zeitgeist.
