Historic Windsor

  Author:   Garth Vaughan    
  Publisher:  Nimbus Publishing

Windsor has undergone a dramatic change in appearance over the years due to complete changes of inhabitants, from Mi’kmaq to Acadians to British. A fire destroyed the town in 1897, which led to the construction of a new set of buildings and, as a result, all new streetscapes. The images collected here will be a revelation to many Windsorians, who will not recognize the town that they have known. Many of the inhabitants who have been important to the town will not be familiar either. Historic Windsor promises to offer a portrait of the town through images that will waken the memory, but teach as well.
