Abstract (English)

Illustrated by period paintings, photographs, maps and historical documentation, Kapelos’ consideration of the Thames River in Ontario investigates the meaning of landscape, its cultural sedimentation, and how place is constituted by the vernacular manifestation of abstract concepts of order, time, and system. L. DiStefano contributes an essay on 19th century travel narratives and adventure tourism associated with the Thames. 36 recent photographs by Evans capture the diversity along the river. List of facts about the Thames with map of its watershed. Bibl. 3 p. 134 bibl. ref.
