9781551092201: Historic Yarmouth: Town & county

Photography, perhaps more than any other medium, provides the most immediate and evocative window to our past. In Historic Yarmouth the unique historical features of this remarkable Nova Scotia town and surrounds are wonderfully presented in photographs taken between the mid-1800s and the early 14940s by photographers who lived and worked in the town itself.

Included here are streetscapes from Yarmouth and it country’s villages; scenes of special events; photographs of ships that made Yarmouth famous during the age of sail; changing modes of transportation; houses and buildings in which local folks lived and worked; and, of course, photographs of the townspeople themselves.

All the photographs presented here, and thousands more, are apart of the Yarmouth’s extraordinary past. This book is a tribute to the people of Yarmouth whose foresight and support have contributed so much posterity.
