A Visual Stroll Through Small-Town Canada

Mark Perry
Brève description: 

Students will imagine that they are the local historians in the Town of Hampton and that they have been asked to write a chapter for a new book titled: A Visual History of Small Town Canada. The publishers have asked them to concentrate on the differences between life in the past and the present.

The students will examine a series of photographs taken in and around Hampton, NB from 1867-1918, and photographs taken of the same sites in February, 2007. They will make inferences about change and continuity of several aspects of life at this time: the society, the economy, the technology and the environment. Finally, they will write a chapter for the book that explains the changes and the continuity.
