“This was an effort of the museum itself,” said the book’s editor, Gord Tolton. “The concept and co-ordination came from our president, Coleen Casey Cyr, with the blessing of the board. The idea was to celebrate the fiftieth anniversary of the historical society, which started with the inception of the Village itself. We wanted to do it as a photographic essay. The buildings themselves were our characters.” Tolton explained that each building had its own section of the book. “Thanks to the photography of Jessica Maunsell and the historical background that Farley Wuth has put together, and my own editing and design coordination, we’ve assembled this beautiful coffee table book.” This is Tolton’s ninth book.
