"Sydney, Cape Breton"


"When the Steel Company located at Sydney the town experienced such a boom as is a novelty in eastern America. Real estate advanced beyond the dreams of its former owners, and new buildings, some of them of the most substantial character, were erected.

The influx of strangers included mechanics, tradesmen and men of all classes of occupation. The population is still increasing and it is likely to do so for years to come."
