It looks back to a time when the station was the heart of the community and a window on the world. The development of architectural styles is also thoroughly explored, from the early stations through the myriad of increasingly elaborate designs, to the grand urban and ch√Ęteau style stations. Brown looks at the decline of Canada’s stations and at the ways in which stations have been preserved in some communities after the trains have gone.” Quantity Available: 1.
