Known as "Petrolia," the region charged the popular imagination with its nearly overnight transition from agriculture to industry. But so unrestrained were these early efforts at oil drilling, Black writes, that "the landscape came to be viewed only as an instrument out of which one could extract crude." In a very short time, Petrolia was a ruined place - environmentally, economically, and to some extent even culturally.

Departing from traditional historiography focused on the economic role of resource development, Canada's Victorian Oil Town incorporates an understanding of the connections between science and technology, nation and imperialism, and cultural nuances of community-building. Burr looks at the cultural importance of place and how collective identity was nurtured in the community. She also illustrates how the image of Petrolia as Canada's Victorian Oil Town has been used since the 1970s to develop a thriving tourist industry in the region. Interdisciplinary in scope, Canada's Victorian Oil Town draws from the history of imperialism, science, resource development, local history, gender studies, and cultural geography.

E-Book basiert auf: 4. Auflage 2014 Wie sein Nachbar im Süden besitzt auch Kanada ein Spektrum der Kulturen, eine zusammengewürfelte Mischung von Einwanderergruppen, die die Urbevölkerung nach und nach verdrängt haben. Aber im Gegensatz zum amerikanischen Schmelztiegel hat Kanada ein zutiefst multikulturelles Lebensgefühl und ein buntes Mosaik der Kulturen hervorgebracht. Für Kanadareisende kann diese auf beispielhafte Toleranz gründende Mischung eine inspirierende Erfahrung sein und Einblicke in so unterschiedliche Lebenswelten wie Vancouvers ausgedehnte Chinatown oder die nüchternen religiösen Enklaven Manitobas bieten. Eine Gemeinschaft, die weniger ein homogenes Volk als vielmehr eine Völkervertretung kontinentalen Ausmaßes darstellt, lässt sich nicht mit vereinfachenden Schlagworten charakterisieren. Dieser Reiseführer stellt die wichtigsten Informationen für Individualreisende zusammen: Eine Mischung aus rauer, wilder Schönheit und überraschenden Landschaften, zu denen gemä ßigte Regenwälder und üppige Plantagen genauso zählen wie die Weite der Prärie oder die von tiefen Fjorden tief eingeschnittenen Küsten.

Cities of Oil is the first sustained historical account of the development of the early Canadian petroleum refining and manufacturing industry. In it, Timothy W. Cobban documents the industry’s development in southern Ontario, from its beginnings in the 1850s to its later expansion on the outskirts of London, to Petrolia, and finally to Sarnia. He accounts for all of the industry’s important developments and innovations, particularly the role played by municipalities in fostering its growth. Using extensive archival research, Cobban concludes that municipalities can stimulate the accelerated, sustained development of local industry sectors, thus challenging the dominant view that the influence of municipalities on economic growth is marginal. Cities of Oil demonstrates the importance of accommodating the land and infrastructure needs of industry at critical junctures, and implementing land use policies that encourage the dense clustering of industries. This book will be essential reading for those seeking a greater understanding of industrial growth in the province of Ontario.
