Double Column. 8vo, illustrated stapled card covers. "The industrial landscape of Dartmouth has changed as the pieces of a kaleidoscope shift and replace each other. There areclues in the names -- Windmill Road, Quaker Landing, businesses like The C anal and The Old Mill -- but the stories that lie hidden to today's eye arefound only in books like this one. Dartmouth has fostered several industri es that manufactured and marketed worldwide -- shipbuilding, ice skate manufacture, whaling, grain milling, and rope manufacture. Or perhaps more accurately, these industries fostered Dartmouth. When was the first bridge built across Halifax Harbour? (No, not in the 1950s!) How did Victoria Park come about? Why was Wyse Road constructed? Here is a wealth of information entertainingly presented." - from rear. Contents : Part One The Early Years,1785-1832 : a. The Nantucket Whalers. b.
