Once the curator at the Whyte Museum of the Canadian Rockies in Banff, Alberta, and author of seven illustrated histories, Edward has pored through many hundreds of thousands of photographs in archives, museums and private collections across Canada and abroad. Since 1992, he and his wife, Donna Livingstone, have operated Livingstone & Cavell Extraordinary Toys, a shop dedicated to nostalgic collector toys and quirky novelty items, in Calgary, Alberta.

Book was not as compelling as I had hoped for . A series of unrelated, random anecdotes - rather disappointing.
