Nova Scotia's Industrial Heritage: A guidebook

Type: books
Vendor: Nimbus


 If you drive across Nova Scotia, you will see abandoned rail lines and sleepy towns that once hummed with mills and mines. If you look closely enough, you will see the remnants of the province's industrial revolution, which began in the 1850s and faded away a century later. In this well-researched, compact guidebook, author and historian David Rollinson identifies and explores many of the historic sites and cultural artifacts that record this era. Included are over 70 sites of interest from across the province, from the shipbuilding display at the Bear River Heritage Museum to the Digby Rail Trails on the old rail bed out of Digby which overlooks the Annapolis Basin. Organized by industry--power, natural resources, agriculture, crafts, and transportation--and by county, plus featuring 60 fascinating images, Nova Scotia's Industrial Heritage will appeal to tourists travelling by car as well as locals interested in industry, their roots, and social change.
