1 McConnell, Gail A. (Inscribed by the author.) Pictorial research by Stan D. Hanson. Chapter V by A. Stirling King. SASKATOON: HUB CITY OF THE WEST. AN ILLUSTRATED HISTORY.
(Windsor Publications, n.p., 1983), Ist edition. 
127 pp, 4to, hard cover in dust jacket. INSCRIBED AND DATED BY THE AUTHOR TO THE EDITIOR ON HALF-TITLE PAGE. B&w and color photos, maps, reproductions. "(T)ells the remarkable Saskatoon story with insight and skill, beginning with the captivating saga of the Temperance Colonists and the land they settled. Their vision of Saskatoon as a transportation centre foreshadowed the determination of later citizens to bring the railroads to their city, enabling Saskatoon to proclaim itself the 'Hub City' by the turn of the century. The decades of the new century brought struggle and achievement - the agricultural co-ops of the twenties; the Depression of the 'dirty thirties'; the mineral boom of the sixties; and Saskatoon's emergence, in the eighties, as a research centre for science and technology. A special chapter, 'Partners in Progress', profiles the contributions of Saskatoon's business community, whose support helped make this volume possible." Tiny bumps to corners, light wrinkling at top/bottom of spine, light soiling on bottom edge of boards. Dust jacket has light edge wear/wrinkling - mainly at top/bottom of spine and flap-folds, two small closed tears archivally taped - one with crease. VG/VG 
Price: 25.00 USD
