Vintage Cabot Trail

  Author:   Terry MacLean    
  Publisher:  Cape Breton University Press

In 1932, the Nova Scotia and Canadian governments undertook to upgrade centuries-old hardscrabble roadways and pathways that linked numerous isolated communities perched between ocean and mountain, roughly circumscribing the bounds of the Cape Breton Highlands.

For 75 years, the Cabot Trail, one of the world’s most stunning travelways, has not only relieved isolation, it has captivated, charmed and challenged motorists, cyclists, runners and walkers alike.

This booklet commemorates the 75th anniversary (1932-2007) of the designation of the Cabot Trail by revisiting the Trail’s earliest years through images from the archives of the Beaton Institute at Cape Breton University.

Terry MacLean, PhD, is a retired CBU Professor, a writer and heritage consultant living in Sydney. He was former Senior Historian at the Fortress of Louisbourg and is the author of books and articles on aspects of Cape Breton history and culture.
