Not Signed
----------oversize (quarto) softcover, about 10.5 x 8.25 inches, a Near Fine copy , 192 pages, colour and b&w photos throughout, ---"Hamilton: A People’s History is a social history of the City of Hamilton. The book is lavishly illustrated by over 200 colour photographs and drawings that come from various archival sources. This description is found in the introduction: This book “is a work of popular history. In these pages you will not find the debates of academic historians; rather my focus is on the story of the city, and the people who have lived here. Hamilton has a rich history that stretches back to Loyalist days and even before when the harbour and Cootes Paradise were the centre of the First Nations group called the Neutrals. The book describes the rise of the steel mills and manufacturing that made the city famous, and tells the stories of the many forceful and colourful personalities that shaped the city’s history. People like Sir Allan MacNab, politician and railway promoter who built Dundurn Castle, Rocco Perri, the “King of the Bootleggers,” and his consort Bessie who dominated the liquor trade in prohibition days and Evelyn Dick accused of a dramatic murder that still fascinates the people of the city. Hamilton: A People’s History tells stories of the development and growth of powerful industrial companies, unions that struggled to gain recognition in bitter strikes, athletes that gained international fame, and men and women who went to war to defend their country and freedom. Their stories are told in the vivid detail that they deserve."---, , any image directly beside this listing is the actual book and not a generic photo
