Chignecto Canal Committee 1948 Soft Cover Good Plus to Very Good No Jacket 8vo - over 7" - 9" tall Charts By Stevenson & Kellogg, Ltd., Montreal 
Softcover booklet of 19 pp. The idea of enabling ship traffic across the Chignecto Isthmus has been around for over 300 years.

Ketchum launched a plan to build a railway to carry ships across, but after spending $4,000,000 he ran out of time. This book dated about 1948 is a plea to try again. "Canada must keep her promise and build it now." - P.15. For further light on the subject, take a trip to Tidnish and research it on the internet.
