2 Mika, Nick and Mika, Helma. With Larry Turner. HISTORIC MILLS OF ONTARIO.
Belleville, Ontario Mika Publishing 1987 0921341083 / 9780921341086 First Edition Hard Cover Near Fine Very Good 
208 pp, 11 1/8" H. Profusely illustrated with colour and b&w photographs, reproductions. "(C)oncentrates on Ontario's saw, grist, flour and woollen mills, beginning with some of the early mills built by government before the 1800s to supply the needs of Loyalist settlers who came to Upper Canada. Although these mills have long since disappeared, they have been depicted by contemporary artists and their portrayals have been reproduced. Enterprising pioneers and later immigrants and their descendants in the 19th century harnessed the magnificent water power of Ontario's rivers and creeks, and the mills they erected on their banks in various counties are featured (here) in text and pictures. Historian Larry Turner gives a general overview of milling in Ontario and the significance of the role the miller played in the life and growth of 19th century communities. He explains basic milling methods, the mill machinery and technological advances, changing economic conditions that influenced the operation of mills, and he discusses restoration of the remaining heritage structures as a practical approach to their preservation. (W)ritten for anyone interested in Ontario's past, for history buffs and genealogists, for it tells about the people who built and operated the mills and about their successes and failures." Very minor wrinkling at top/bottom of spine. Dust jacket has minor edge wear/wrinkling, light edge wrinkling at top/bottom of spine, one small edge tear archivally taped, minor rubbing.
