The buildings of Canada: R62-234/1986E-PDF

a guide to pre-20th-century styles in houses, churches and other structures /

"Parks Canada, in 1970, began the identification of buildings of great historical and architectural significance. The Canadian Inventory of Historic Building is an ongoing computer-based survey to locate a valid sample of surviving historic buildings throughout Canada. It was primarily designed to provide data to enable the Historic Sites and Monuments Board of Canada to judge the significance of a building or group of buildings, and to compare it with others of similar style and value in Canada. The Inventory also serves as a source of current basic data for architectural and social historians as well as an information bank for urban planners, preservationists and other groups or individuals interested in our architectural heritage. The Buildings of Canada, originally published by Reader's Digest in the book Explore Canada, will serve as a valuable reference for all who share a concern for our Canadian heritage"--Foreword.
