Lovell's Gazetteer of the Dominion of Canada
We have taken the master book and are scanning in each page of the cities, towns, villages and places. Each page in this book will have its own page in this section and we'll index each Letter on a master page which will then link to the page where the city, town, village and place is mentioned in the book.
Having played around with the resolution we've decided to present each page at 590 pixels in width as it's just readable at that size. However if you can't read the text then by clicking on the graphic a larger copy of the page will display at 1200 pixels width.
Given that we have to scan in each page then put it through a page enhancement program to size it and enhance the clarity this will likely take quite a while to complete. So please bear with us as we get this onto the site.
The full copy of this gazetteer also contains considerable listings of railway and steamboat routes as well as numerous company adverts. Probably some 200 pages in all which we've decided not to include within this offering.
Each of the above letters will take you to a single page where all the places are listed in alphabetical order making it easy to find the place you are looking for.
Here are the pdf's of each letter of the Gazetteer which you can download...
