It possessed the special privileges of a Cinque Port, was strategically placed to serve successive monarchs as a military and naval base for their overseas expeditions, and its trading activities extended far and wide. [...] Evidence from standing structures, the archaeological record, and extensive documentary sources has been combined to trace Sandwich's development through the ages. New light has been shed on the location of the earliest settlement, the changes to the harbour and anchorage, the reasons for the unusual street pattern, and the relationship between town and royal castle. A survey of almost one hundred medieval houses brings out their urban form, and in conjunction with documents illustrates the different character of individual parts of the town and conjures up the material circumstances in which the inhabitants lived." - from rear.

132 COMEAU, Louis V. Images of Our Past series Historic Kentville. First Edition.
Nimbus Publishing, Halifax, 2003, ISBN:1551094584 
COMEAU, Louis V. Historic Kentville. (Halifax, NS) : Nimbus Publishing, (2003). First Printing. Pp. (5),vi-x,[1]-158. Illustrated. 8vo, illustrated card covers with purple spine. A volume in the Images of Our Past series. "Situated in Nova Scotia's Annapolis Valley, Kentville owes its existence to its unique location as the last crossing point of the Cornwallis River before it empties into the great Minas Basin. Here the early inhabitants, Mi'kmaq and Acadians, forded the river, establishing trading and social patterns.Later, a bridge linked the townships of Cornwallis and Horton, allowing th e small settlements of Planters, and later Loyalists, to form the basis of a commercial centre, serving agricultural villages throughout the valley. In 1869 the town's dream of a railway linking it to other valley communitiesbecame a reality, and when the railway established its headquarters at Ken tville and began shipping Annapolis Valley apples to foreign markets, the town boomed. 'Historic Kentville' traces the development of the town from its earliest beginnings to its present-day status as a finance and governmentservice centre. Along the way, Kentville produces the first automobile in Nova Scotia, and became home to the province's longest standing festival --the Apple Blossom Festival. Author Louie Comeau has combined photographs f rom his own collection with absorbing and entertaining details to provide acharming historic portrait of an important valley town." -from rear cover.
