This revised and enlarged edition of the popular and acclaimed A Picture History of Ontario presents the life and times of Ontario from the arrival of the first Loyalists in Upper Canada right down to the present. The book includes some four hundred illustrations – first-hand visual images portraying not only the public events, military and political, but the everyday life of the ordinary people at work and play.
