Obviously well-read but no wonder; it's an interesting book, capturing every aspect of the province in early 20th century. Covers Ontario's government, climate, transportation, education, banking, industry, cities and towns, power, minerals, forest wealth, agriculture, immigration, northern regions and pioneer settlements. Fab photos of the Temiskaming and Northern Ontario Railway, rural electric streetcars, tobacco growing in Essex Co., comfortable farm homes, manure spreaders, etc. Those concerned about the climate are assured that "the rigor of winter induces vigor of both mind and body".
