The Town of Orangeville has a colourful, exciting past -- a history being documented in book form for the first time. From the early days of the Irish pioneers escaping the political problems of Ireland to the present influx of new residents fleeing the pressures of cities, Orangeville has been a town that has adapted well to change, always ready for new ideas. The strength of the community has been the people who have chosen to live there and who have left us interesting traces of their lives and the times. Much of the material used to research this book comes from newspapers, diaries, letter.

This is a book on almost anything you want to know about Orangeville including it how it came to be with chapters on roads and railways, the landmarks in town, local entertainment, and a chapter on Broadway: Street of Dreams.
What makes this book interesting are the stories with lots of actual recorded words as said by the residents, the best being a rare view of 1925 from the perspective of a child ( ice cream for one cent and a real old-fashioned square meal for 50 cents. Lots of pictures also make the book interesting.
