BOOK - Pictorial Brighton 1859-1984 [Brighton, Northumberland County, Ontario]
By Various writers and The Book Committee
Pictures tracing Brighton's 125 year history show the town's durability and flexibility. Behind each picture lies the story of people -- people who value their enviroment, heritage, and independance; people who adapt to changing technology but preserve family feeling; people who rally to celebrate, to morn, but most of all, to help. The re-building of Main Street after the 1921 fire and after the 1973 toronado illustrates Brightonian determination to move forward.
The churches, schools and community services show that Brighton's interests go beyond farming, business, and tourism which sustain the economy. Creative artists who choose Brighton as home add vitality to the quality of life.
This book celebrates Brighton's past as the cornerstone of its future.
