Description: Burlington, Ontario, North Shore. 2003, First Edition. (ISBN: 189689920X) Soft Cover. 104 pp, oblong 8vo (8" H x 10 1/2" D). Profusely illustrated with b&w photographs. Signed by author on title page. "There is a lot of nostalgia within these pages. The photographs show a different sort of community as it has evolved over the years. There is a series of photographs taken on Colborne Street - better known today as Lakeshore Road - showing retail establishments long gone as well as other shots of historic houses, the harbors in transition, and Rebecca Street of long, long ago. A series of aerial photographs, some dating back more than 40 years, provide a different glimpse of Oakville, offering a unique perspective of the downtown core. Then marvel at the old schools, the Middle Road and the bustling community of Palermo, and even an antique car display at the Ford plant. As you leaf through these pages, an Oakville of another era will come alive, one rich in tradition, one as seen through the eyes of photographers." Interior - clean and tight with no previous ownership marks. Exterior - very minor edge wear. Near Fine. Signed by Author.
