Exploring the history of these mid-nineteenth-century buildings -- among them, charming cottages and farmhouses, spectacular mansions, glorious churches and cathedrals, and dignified civic buildings -- reveals a picture of their communities'' origins, aspirations and evolution. From the stories of the houses and buildings in these early Ontario communities we learn of the masons, the architects, the developers, the town leaders and citizens who created and inhabited these enduring examples of a variety of stonebuilding techniques and architectural styles. A Heritage of Stone offers a fascinating new perspective on the histories of many leading communities of south-western Ontario. It celebrates the many fine stone buildings which are the pride of these cities and towns. This book will also appeal to anyone interested in heritage buildings and 19th century Ontario architecture.

They slowly converted their traditional two-storey homes into a hodge-podge of shops that now offer a diversity of foods and products that is perhaps unparalleled in any other city neighbourhood. Seemingly chaotic at first sight, one is quickly captivated by the old world ambiance as the market moves to its own rhythms with fish mongers, cheese shops, cafes, chocolate shops, street vendors, and specialty emporiums for every taste. --Kensington was published to mark the 25th anniversary of St Stephen’s Community House, in the heart of the neighbourhood. The book includes biographies on such historic figures as the Denison Family, and over 200 historical and contemporary photographs, maps and diagrams of Kensington Market, some dating back to pre-Confederation Canada. Vincenzo Pietropaolo has been photographing the neighbourhood since the early 1970s, including a house-by-house documentation in 1981"---, any image directly beside this listing is the actual book and not a generic photo

One, Rocco Perri, from southern Italy, rose from the life of a petty criminal on the streets of Toronto to running the most prominent bootlegging operation of the Prohibition era, taking over Hamilton and leading one of the country’s most influential crime syndicates. Perri was feared by his enemies and loved by the press, who featured him regularly in splashy front-page headlines. So great was his celebrity that, following the murder of his wife and business partner, Bessie Starkman, a crowd of 30,000 thronged the streets of Hamilton for her funeral. ---Perri’s businesses—which included alcohol, drugs, gambling and prostitution—kept him under constant police surveillance. He caught the interest of one man in particular, the other arrival from Italy, Frank Zaneth. Zaneth, originally from the Italian north, joined the RCMP and became its first undercover investigator—Operative No. 1. Zaneth’s work took him across the country, but he was dogged in his pursuit of Rocco Perri and worked for his arrest until the day Perri was last seen, in 1944, when he disappeared without a trace. ---With original research and masterful storytelling, Cole details the fascinating rise to power of a notorious Prohibition-era Canadian crime figure twinned with the life of the man who pursued him"---, any image directly beside this listing is the actual book and not a generic photo
