  • More About This Book
Wallaceburg, a progressive industrial community, hasalways been on the move. Its reliance on the local waterways through the Sydenham and Chenal EcarteRivers illuminates an important lifeline in the town. The rivers' influence spans from the lumber boom days of the last century through the industrial periods to a primarily recreational view of Wallaceburg's waterways. The wide variety of images in this collection reflects the many facets of the community at both work and play. Wallaceburg: Faces and Places displays photographs from the collections of the Wallaceburg and District Museum, the Mann Historical Files, and Roy Mathany, who covered the World War II years via the Dominion Glass War Services Committee.
