Author: Patrick J. Campbell
Synopsis: One of the few books about the actual construction and manufacturing of aircraft. In 1912 the Canadian Vickers shipyard is established on the St. Lawrence River in Montreal. In 1920, it is declared perfect for assembling seaplanes. When a new plant is built in St. Laurent, land-based aircraft construction continues until 1984 under the Canadair name. A very readable story of a bit of Canadian aviation history.
