Cyril E. Leonoff (1925–2016) was a professional engineer and historian who wrote on both engineering and on the history of British Columbia and Western Canada. He was past-president of the Vancouver Historical Society and the Jewish Historical Society and has chaired the Vancouver Heritage Advisory Committee. His two books published by Talonbooks in the Leonard Frank Studio series are Bridges of Light: Otto Landauer of Leonard Frank Photos, 1945–1980 (1997) and An Enterprising Life: Photographs of Leonard Frank (1990 – now out of print).
Otto Landauer was part of a long line of great photographers of the Canadian West, and in the medium of black and white, he was at the magnificent end of that line.
