The social boundary that separated the working class from others is revealed as a division that for much of the pre-war boom period divided Vancouver society more fundamentally than the boundary separating labour from capital. Robert A. Select Bibliography. Status was defined by Weber as the positive or negative estimation of honour or prestige received by individuals or groups. Vancouver stands apart from many other North American cities of the period in the degree to which it retained elements of its frontier past.
Despite its separation into groups ranked by wealth, education, and influence, society remained open and fluid. If class does not by itself explain the differences, though, what does? Identities reflected a host of influences, of which the economic system was only one. Equally important was European migrants' quest for status, a process of social definition based on manual regard or prestige that structured relationships in a hierarchical manner from the very outset of settlement on Burrard Inlet.
The anglophone majority, whose members considered themselves 'citizens, ' were divided from the 'immigrants, ' transients, and poor, whom they categorized as 'outsiders, ' by a social boundary that is revealed as much more fundamental than the separation of labour from capital. This work both confirms and challenges our understanding of Vancouver's early history. Class tensions still emerge as a central feature of city life, and racism still divides Vancouverites from one another. But conventional wisdom also gives way to new understanding when status is recognized a an important but over-looked aspect of urban experience.
