Lines of Country: An Atlas of Railway and Waterway History in Canada

ANDREAE, Christopher

Regular price $200.00 Sale

Chris Andreae is a geographer turned industrial and transportation historian. In this volume he takes readers on a journey from the beginnings of commercial transit, on the trunk roads and canals of the colonial era, to the massive undertaking of railroad construction and operation throughout modern-day Canada. The book is full of rare photos and detailed maps of railways and waterways, both active and abandoned. The large size of this book is fully justified, considering the size of Canada and its transportation systems.
