Dartmouth Historical Association, Dartmouth, 1997, ISBN:0969664656 1977 0969664656 / 9780969664659 
CHAPMAN, Harry. White Shirts with Blue Collars : Industry in Dartmouth, Nova Scotia 1785-1995.(Dartmouth, Nova Scotia) : The Dartmouth Historical Association, (1997). First Edition. Pp (6),1-85,(1). With 31 b&w photos as well as other illustrations in the text. Double Column. 8vo, photo-illustrated stapled card covers.

"The industrial landscape of Dartmouth has changed as the pieces of a kaleidoscope shift and replace each other. There are clues in the names -- Windmill Road, Quaker Landing, businesses like The Canal and The Old Mill -- but the stories that lie hidden to today's eye are found only in books like this one.

Dartmouth has fostered several industries 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.
