Synopsis: Turn of the Century provides a wealth of fresh details about the way things were in this country when the 20th century started. This timely book looks at how people lived, what they talked about and thought about, what they did for a living, and what they did for fun. This readable "poplar history" provides all kinds of ways for readers to compare Canada as it is now with the way it was when the 20th century was fresh, new and full of promise. This book will take you back to the horse and buggy era, to the time when there were no airplanes, no computers and no television sets. But it will also take you back to the not-so-long-ago days when people got excited about the Stanley Cup, when householders couldn't wait to try out the latest gadgets, and when hucksters urged people to spend a bundle so Santa could deliver the presents. Well illustrated with bxw pictures.
