134 pp, 11 1/4" H. B&w and colour illustrations. "The story of Oakville's evolution from a mill at the mouth of the Sixteen (Mile Creek) to a thriving commercial harbour is told with humour, insight, and humanity. The growth of a community out of the wilderness is an inspiring tale of vision and hard work, told in first-hand accounts of events ranging from the first terrible winters to the coming of the first automobile. The men and women who built Oakville speak eloquently of their struggle and their triumph. A special 'Partners in Progress' section (by Jeffrey Charles Martin) details the businesses that have grown and thrived in Oakville through the years."
