"The lavishly illustrated biography of one of eastern Canada's most important architects. The first biography of any Canadian architect.

William Critchlow Harris (1854-1913), A.R.C.A., the brother of the P.E.I. portrait painter Robert Harris, was a talented and original High Victorian architect, trained entirely in Canada, whose work deserves to be remembered. However, as he lived in Prince Edward Island, Nova Scotia, and Manitoba, in relative obscurity, he was quickly forgotten after his death. Only now are his exquisitely rendered elevations for churches, banks, office buildings, courthouses, libraries, and other civic and private structures - many of which were never realized - being redeiscovered and assesses acccording to their true merit.

There are two themes in this book which make Harris' story of particular interest to contemporary readers. Harris became one of the first Canadian town planners when he was commissioned to lay out the new mining town of Broughton in Cape Breton, and to design all its public and private buildings. Only a few of the buildings were actually completed before the company went bankrupt and the venture failed.

Harris' second major disappointment is one common to many Canadians. Although it had been assumed for more than a decade that Harris would design the Anglican Cathedral of Halifax, a new bishop, questioning Harris' ability (since he had remained all his life in the Maritimes) secured the contract for a New York firm who had proposed an inferior church, both aesthetically and technically. Harris was in turn hired by this firm as the on site architect. When the new Cathedral proved faulty, Harris was blamed. He died shortly after.

This book is also a fascinating study of late Victorian Canada. With the use of generous excerpt from family letters, the author is able to recreate the social and domestic life of the period." - from the dj.

206 HARRISON, Phyllis, ed. Home Children : Their Personal Stories. Third Printing, Paperback.
Watson & Dwyer Publishing Ltd., Winnipeg, 1985, ISBN:0920486045 
HARRISON, Phyllis, ed. The Home Children : Their Personal Stories. Winnipeg, Manitoba : Watson & Dwyer Publishing Ltd., (January 1985). Third Printing. Pp. [1]-271,(1). Illustrated. 8vo, photo-illustrated orange card covers, white and black lettering to front cover, black lettering to spine. "From 1870 to 1930 British 'Home' children -- over 100,000 of them -- arrived to work on Canadian farms. Travelling in groups of up to four hundred, their worldly possessions in small metal trunks, they came from the discipline of British 'Homes' to the land that was believed to over the best hope for their future. Some of them are still living; their personal stories have been compiled and edited by Phyllis Harrison. They recall the long sea voyage andtheir arrival at unknown railway platforms with name tags around their nec ks, to be met by unknown farmers. It was the loneliest moment of their lives. The strange countryside, the cold climate, the new type of farming -- 'we saw pails hanging on the trees and wondered what they were' -- were all asource of wonder. It is fitting that their stories be published for the fi rst time in this, the Year of the Child. From childhood memories, the writers tell of the harsh conditions that separated them from family and friends, of the reality of loneliness, of grinding hard work, discrimination an disappointment. The British Child Emigration movement provided hope, for after serving out their indentures the Home children struck out on their own, free at last, to make their own contribution to Canada." - from rear cover.

HILL, Douglas. The Opening of the Canadian West : Where Strong Men Gathered. New York : The John Day Company, (1967). First American Edition. Pp (6),vi-xii,1-[291],(1),+ 16 pages of b&w plates. 8vo, red cloth, gilt lettering to spine.

Douglas Arthur Hill (b. April 6, 1935, Brandon, Manitoba – d. June 21, 2007, London, England).

"In the 1890s, when the western United States had been largely settled, restless spirits and landseekers began to turn toward the almost empty wilderness of Canada. Douglas Hill, a western Canadian born in Manitoba and raised in Prince Albert, Saskatchewan, tells in The Opening of the Canadian West the story of how strong and determined men tamed these last reluctant wild lands to make Canada a truly transcontinental nation.

Even as late as 1857, England had to send the surveyor-explorer Captain Palliser to give them some idea of what lay between Ontario and the Pacific coast. And at the time of Canada's confederation in 1867, two small settlements were all of civilization that existed in this huge area.

Thirty-eight years later, the wilds had been conquered and settlers were pouring in. Unlike in the United States, the author points out, it was not the settlers who had opened up this land, but fur traders, fierce bands of half-breeds, missionaries, gun-toting miners, mounted police, revolutionaries and railroad builders - some legendary, many more than a little unsavory. The Canadian West was won by a special breed of individualist, such as Van Horne, the American railroader, who was never known to sleep, and the lone Mountie who would stand at the U.S. border and order American cowboys driving cattle north to keep their guns in their saddlebags while in Canada. They did.

Douglas Hill's account of the winning of the Canadian West - so different from our own West's history - is thoroughly researched and very readable, a long-overdue introduction to an exciting era." (from the dj).
