Nova Scotia from the Air: Then and Now (Hardcover)


In this brilliant follow-up to the bestselling Then & Now, award-winning photographer Len Wagg again takes readers back through time. Aerial landscapes shot in dazzling colour from Louisbourg to Church Point are contrasted with black-and-white photos from the Nova Scotia Archives collection.  Readers will see high rises where there were once open fields; stark vistas filled in with residences and windmills.  In some side-by-side pairings, the change is startling; in others, subtle.

Nova Scotia from the Air is both a photo book and a historical study.  Wagg flew over towns and landmarks from one end of the province to the other, recreating scenes from archival photos dating back to the 1930s.  This remarkable collection of then-and-now images shows both the growth and the decline of this province by the sea. The 100 photographs evoke nostalgia and surprise.
