ePub Lake Simcoe and Lake Couchiching ePub

by Mary Byers

Lake Simcoe's 300 square miles of water are surrounded by the undulating curves of 140 miles of shoreline and a diverse array of communities, including the cities of Barrie and Orillia. Both cities grew on lumber and railways and were home to colorful characters and bold entrepreneurs. The smaller communities along Kempenfeldt Bay were part of the halcyon days of boatbuilding.

In this remarkable collection of photographs and essays, Mary Byers tells the story of a lake that has witnessed a wealth of events. Illustrated by rare archival photographs and the stunning contemporary color photography of John de Visser, this is sure to remain the finest work ever published on this exceptional part of Ontario.

Chapters include: - Orillia - Stephen Leacock - Kempenfeldt Bay - Barrie - Big Bay Point - Ice Harvesting - De Grassi Point - Holland Marsh - Roches Point - Jackson's Point - Beaverton - The Trent Canal - The Chippewa and the Islands - Lake Steamers - Boatbuilders
