Eilleen,

Have you sent an inquiry to the West Vancouver Memorial Library? They should know about local directories, etc.

The Vancouver Public Library has B.C. directories on-line that go up to 1955 http://bccd.vpl.ca

It also has additional directories (not yet on-line) that go beyond 1955 so contacting them would be the only way to find something for 1959.

I live in West Vancouver and visit the WV library frequently. I don't think they have directories that go back to 1959 but as suggested by Josephine contacting them would confirm. They are very helpful and obliging.

Ambleside was a small village in 1959 and came under West Vancouver.
