AbstractThis book is a description of the shipping industry in Canada, the United States, and Great Britain during the 19th century, with a special focus on the square-rigged ships of the merchant marine. Chapters include information on the Bluenose, ship building in Lunenburg and New Brunswick, the booming ship industry of the 1850's, and several other descriptions of ships built during the latter part of the 19th century. The importance of Quebec to the Atlantic shipping industry is also discussed, as many square-rigged ships were built in Quebec. A number of photographs and illustrations of ships are included in this book.
