Historic Sydney — Images of Our Past
by Rannie Gillis • 140 photos • 176 pages
IN HIS FAMILIAR, ENGAGING STYLE, this well-known Cape Breton author offers an informative and entertaining portrait of Nova Scotia’s third-largest city.
Gillis chose his images from the archives of the Old Sydney Society, the Public Archives of Nova Scotia, and private collections. He gives a detailed description of the place or person in each photo, and its historical significance.
With large industries, the historic waterfront, streetscapes, public events, and sports teams, Sydney was a photographer’s dream.
