Community and the Upper Streets in Halifax, 1890-1914:  An examination of poverty and homelessness in Halifax at the turn of 20th century, this book challenges the notion that the poor are deviants who are responsible for their own misfortune. Using public records and the stories of real people, the author breathes life into Halifax’s most sordid neighborhoods—and reveals the humanity of people trying to make ends meet under difficult circumstances.
