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.
