82 Walker, Willa. NO HAY FEVER & A RAILWAY: SUMMERS IN ST. ANDREWS, CANADA'S FIRST SEASIDE RESORT.
Fredericton, New Brunswick Goose Lane Editions 1989 0864920962 / 9780864920966 First Edition Hard Cover Very Good Very Good Signed by Author
176 pp, oblong 8vo (8 3/4" H x 11 1/4" D). B&w photographs, maps, reproductions. SIGNED AND DATED BY AUTHOR ON HALF TITLE PAGE. "During the latter years of the nineteenth century St. Andrews was 'discovered' by a wealthy few who sought a summer place by the sea. Escaping from Boston, Montreal, St. Louis, Toronto and elsewhere, they bought, rented, or built houses, returning year after year as their children did in turn. Luxurious hotels such as 'The Argyll' and 'The Algonquin' - advertising 'no hay fever' and good rail connections - were built to serve them, and a summer society was established: riding, sailing, playing tennis and croquet, dining, dancing, and gossiping. Fathers of Confederation like Sir Leonard Tilley and Sir Charles Tupper, the great railway builders Sir William Van Horne and Lord Shaughnessy, financiers like Sir James Dunn, politicians from Senator Cairine Wilson and C.D. Howe to John Turner, were joined in St. Andrews by socialites and possessors of 'old money' from both Canada and the United States. (This book) records the achievements and oddities of the people who made up this small but distinctive society and describes the 'cottages' in which they spent those summers by the sea." Previous owner's name on free front endpaper, small light soiling mark at fore-edge of free rear endpaper. Dust jacket has light wrinkling at top/bottom of spine and flap-folds, minor edge wrinkling.

UNDER THE ELECTRIC SKY: THE LEGACY OF THE BILL LYNCH SHOWS., Walsh, Christopher A.
85 Walsh, Christopher A. UNDER THE ELECTRIC SKY: THE LEGACY OF THE BILL LYNCH SHOWS.
Pottersfield, Lawrencetown Beach, Nova Scotia, 2010. 
158 pp, 9" H, soft cover. ISBN 9781897426173 B&w photographs, reproductions. "(T)akes readers on a thrilling ride through the strange and fabled history of the Bill Lynch Shows, from its modest beginnings on McNab's Island in Halifax Harbour to t he successful, tumultuous years criss-crossing the countryside to its current incarnation struggling along dark Maritime highways today. This is one of the most curious stories of this region's past, one never completely understood and, until now, never told in its entirety. The Bill Lynch Shows would breeze into small Maritime towns after dark, packed with enough electricity and magic to illuminate the imaginations of anyone who stepped foot on the midway for the brief while it played thei r town. For many, itst return after a long winter made summer official. The shows became entrenched in the collective psyche, at once the centre of earthly thrills and some of the greatest acts of charity ever witnessed in the region. Clarence ' So ggy' Reid continued the enterprise in the same manner, until the death of a man on the carnival lot in Port Hawkesbury threatened to destroy the dream forever. Walsh chronicles the true story of the Maritime carnival with unflinching detail, wea vin g flashes of the carnival's captivating past with a first-hand account of life on the carnival lot today." Interior - clean and tight with no previous ownership marks. Exterior - minor rubbing. Near Fine

111 pp, oblong (8 1/2" H x 10 5/8" D). Profusely illustrated with b&w photographs. "Julie Watson has divided (this) book into sections that include travel by sea, land, and air; silver fox farming; fishing; sports; arts; and ceremonial occasions. She takes us on a nostalgic trip around the Island through scenes of rustic charm, from picturesque farms to the harness races, from shipyards to socials, from Charlottetown to the sea. Perhaps more fascinating still, in evocative pictures and words, she introduces us to the proud and patriotic Islanders: nurses, missionaries, dignitaries, entrepreneurs, writers and many others. Our last glimpse is a poignant one - photos of confident young men marching bravely away to war." Dust jacket has very minor rubbing, very tiny scuff at top corner of front panel, soft small crease at bottom edge of rear panel.
