A warm and inviting picture-album look at the life and work of Mabel and Alexander Graham Bell during their years in Nova Scotia
When the Bell family first arrived in the village of Baddeck in 1885, Alexander Graham Bell had already made his fortune with the invention of the telephone a decade earlier. When they returned to Baddeck a year later, they found a perfect spot for their summer home, Beinn Bhreagh, on a headland that offered a panoramic view of lakes, islands and hills; it was bathed in light from sunrise to sunset.
It was here over the next 30 years where Alec worked on experiments in early aviation and hydrofoils while Mabel contributed both time and resources to the community. Beinn Bhreagh was a happy place, a home designed for comfort and company where all were welcome. This is the story of this period, illustrated with striking informal photographs of family, scientists and Baddeck residents.
