Created by celebrated artist Tom Carter, this painting depicts a dramatic scene outside the Vancouver Police Department on a cold winter's day in 1935. Throughout the worst years of the Great Depression, the VPD struggled to maintain order over a city beset with violence, corruption, and increasing unemployment.
The early 1930s saw continual reductions in officers’ pay, leading many to take bribes in order to make ends meet. Anxiety was high over who might be next to end up on the bread line—or in jail.
