Algonquin's natural beauty stands in such contrast to the man-made environment in which we live today, that many of us assume the Park we see now is exactly the way it has always been. People have been associated with this area for over 4500 years, and many of the physical signs are still evident today. An astonishing amount of the Park's history has been recorded on film, and we can still appreciate today such colourful periods as the pioneer loggers, the early rangers, the grand hotels and the railways. This book contains 85 of the best and most representative historical photographs in the Park's archives. Revised and refreshed. 44 pages. Ron Tozer & Dan Strickland. 2012.
