Historic Mahone Bay
Brian Tennyson and Wilma Stewart-White
A look at the role of Mahone Bay in major historical events of the last 250 years, with a focus on oral and anecdotal history, allowing citizens of Mahone Bay past and present to describe their experiences. More than 170 historical photographs.
Dear Old Mahone
A must-have book for anyone with Mahone Bay roots or an interest in town history. Produced by local historian, Joan Foran, with help from Wilma Stewart-White and Cheryl Sullivan and photographs by Andrew Foran.
Churches of Nova Scotia
By Robert Tuck. As much a human interest book as it is about ecclesiastical buildings. Both text and photographs tell the story of more than 30 Nova Scotia churches, but in the telling the relationship between the interior life and history of the churches and the exterior and architecture of the church buildings is explored. The book is well balanced, containing a selection of churches from all parts of the province and representing a variety of denominational and ethnic identities, time periods, and architectural styles.
