It was first conceived and made possible by Professor Arnold Doane who employed his vacations in ferreting out the life-stories and relationships of the early settlers of Barrington. This work he continued untilhis death in 1911. Afterwards the subscriber, who had long felt the import ance of preserving the history of his native township, acquired the memoranda left by Prof. Doane and has put them with many changes and extensive additions into their present shape. The Archives at Ottawa, Halifax, Liverpooland Yarmouth, as well as of Shelburne ard Barrington have been searched an d the answers to many questions of general and local historical interest are here made known. [...] Historians of Nova Scotia have generally, through ignorance or lack of perspective, ignored the earlier and more substantial pre^loyalist settlement and its impor- tance to the Province, while invariably featuring the refugee loyalists and their miseries. In Shelburne Countyin particular the older township was for the time complete- ly overshadowe d by the new one. We have attempted to present these factors of township and provincial foun- dations in their true and proper proportions in this work." (from Crowell's preface). Some wear to spine ends and corners, spine rubbed, inner hinges cracked, penned name, else very good. Signed "With the Compliments of the Author, Edwin Crowell. Feb. 9, 1924.". 175.00

CUNNINGHAM, Don and Don ARTZ. The Halifax Street Railway, 1866-1949. (Halifax), NS: Nimbus Publishing, (2009). First Printing. Pp. (6),vii-x,[1]-85,(1). Illustrated with 85 b&w photos as well as some drawings, a Bob Chambers cartoon, &c. 8vo, photo-illustrated pale blue card covers.

A volume in the Images of our Past series.

With a photo on p.17 the right edge of which shows our old Barrington Street building

A lovely little volume detailing the prevalence of the streetcars as the preferred method of transportation in the city. Dating from the use of horse-drawn trams starting in 1866, through the retirement of the trams from the city shortly after the end of the Second World War, this informative volume is an excellent addition to the slim field of work focusing on one of the oft-overlooked aspects of Halifax's history. Much on the Birney Safe Cars.

1. Horse Trams;
2. Electric Trams;
3. Birneys;
4. The War Years;
5. Post-War;
6. The Birneys Bow Out.

Very good. Due to its small size, shipping costs should be cheaper than quoted. 15.00

"It was in 1953 that Ann Davison made a bit of history by being the first woman to sail th e Atlantic single-handed - a feat she recorded in her best-selling My Ship is so Small. Having arrived in America she decided to live there for a time- 'settle down' would never be the term to use for her - and before long s he wondered what should be her next adventuture. As far back as 1954 the seeds were sown in her mind of a Grand Stateside Tour: to sail from Miami to Miami; via Atlantic Seabooard to New York; by the River Hudson and.d canalsto Lake Ontario and Canada; more canals and great lakes to Chicago; by the great Rivers Illinois and Mississippi to New Orleans and the Gulf of Mexic o; across the Gulf to the west coast of Florida; and home to Miaiami. But things got in the way: a marriage which 'didn't take and was, so to speak, struck off the rolls'; an illness, 'It was cancer, the doctor said, in a roundabout way, and I vvould have to have an operation ...'; another marriage,but this didn't get in the way (apart irom the time she spent trying to re member whether his name was Bert Billheimer or Bill Bertheimer), and plans for the Grand Tour began to develop. Ann was to go alone - 'I can't take that kind of time off', said Bert, adding with a grin 'besides she won't let me - her writing contracts say she has to go alone. They don't want a man. along. Spoil the story.' Without admitting that he might have spoilt it, itis our opinion that Ann's account of her solo tro trip in her 17-foot outb oard cruiser Gemini, makes delightfully enthralling reading."

They were written in the 1830's to accompany the 6" Ordnance Survey maps, but with one exception were not published at the time. In this new edition they act as a nineteenth-century Domesday book and are essential to the understanding of the cultural heritage of our communities. The Memoirs document the landscape and situation, buildings and antiquities, land-holdings and population, employment and livelihood of the parishes. This volume contains the Memoirs for Newry and 11 other parishes in South Down.
