The Short History Series

There are three books in the short history series, with a fourth due  in 2017. The Motorist's Shortcut details the long history of the Owen Sound Transportation Company. The Port of Owen Sound 1840-1912 is the first of a three part history of Owen Sound; and Saints and Sinners details the long fight over alcohol in Owen Sound, the last City in Canada to abolish prohibition--in 1972!

Owen Sound Photo Books

A few years ago, a friend who has a 'junk to the dump' business brought me a collection of historic films and photographs. It made me think of the sheer amount of our history that must be going to landfill sites on an annual basis. This revelation prompted me to collaborate with Foto Art Camera Shop and Ginger Press to create 'A Portrait of Owen Sound: Photographs of J James 1905-1955. The book was an instant success and was the first in a series of four.
